A nude man, Adam, lies on the ground. His eyes are closed and his right arm is over his eyes. A nude woman, Eve, rises from his right side. She appears to be floating. Her arms are raised above her head, her hands clasped together in supplication. A male figure wearing a robe is in the background, but his image is hazy and is much fainter than Adam and Eve.
