The Fall (1508-1512)



The Fall (1508-1512)
Michelangelo Buonarroti 1475 – 1564
fresco — 1508-1512
Genesis 3:6 - And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Eve takes the apple from the snake, who has told her that after eating the fruit she will be as God, knowing good and evil. The moment is known as the Fall.

The fresco is part of Michelangelo's decoration of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
