Skull of Adam

Raye Mayo submitted her "latest skull painting, 'Adam.' Mixed media on board."

Most of you are probably familiar with the tale of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Eve tempted Adam into eating an apple from the tree of knowledge. Because of that act, they were both cast out of the garden by God. I suspect with the addition of the apple, and title of this piece, this is about that story. Creation stories exist in all religions. They have similarities. Some seem plausible and others seem more fantasy than reality. Regardless, they are meant to entertain us with stories of how life on Earth was created, because none of us truly know.
