Bible of Nürnberg

Expulsion from Paradise

This Baroque masterpiece of engraving depicts the final episode from the Fall of Man, i.e. the banishment of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. Having eaten the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge, the first two humans are banished, and cherubim armed with flaming swords are set about the borders of Paradise to prevent them from returning to eat from the tree of life, and thus gain immortality.

One’s eyes are immediately drawn to the image of the angel armed with a sword that literally turns to flame and descending from Heaven in a burst of clouds and light. Both original humans are depicted in detail, and not only does Adam have a developed musculature, but Eve’s abdominal muscles are surprisingly well-defined as well.
