Reproduction of an engraving by Albrecht Dürer depicting Adam and Eve standing beneath the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. The serpent hangs on a tree branch between them with an apple in its mouth, as Eve reaches to take it. The two figures are surrounded by a mouse, an ox, a cat, a hare, and an elk. A plaque hanging from the tree branch where a tropical bird is perched displays the artist's name and the date.
