The Expulsion from Paradise (1508-1512)



The Expulsion from Paradise (1508-1512)
Michelangelo Buonarroti 1475 – 1564
fresco — 1508-1512
Genesis 3:24 - So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
As punishment for their disobedience Adam and Eve are driven from Paradise. Another part of their punishment is their realization that they are naked.

Part of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel.
