The Fruit Of The Tree Which Is In The Midst Of The Garden
Painting - Tempera On Cardboard
Little girl eating an apple, as everybody can see. Does this image have any other meaning?
The pure artistic aim was to achieve a quality of fresco painting (the original is rather large - a square meter). But, surely enough, the spectator may see in this painting some symbolic message, for example: each little girl has in her something of our mutual mother Eve, and each fruit has in it something of the Tree of Knowledge. In fact, ancient jewish sages and other classical interpreters of The Bible tried to identify this doubtful fruit, and gave us a wide range of possibilities, from cytrus (etrog) to grape, and even banana.
The liitle girl on the picture is two and a half years old, and at some farther stage of her life she became the artisi's wife.
