Adam's Grave


Here's another surpassingly strange painting. The theme here is a traditional medieval one...that the Archangel Michael had Eve plant a sapling on the grave of Adam. That sapling grew into a tree in Solomon's court, and was eventually cut down and discarded. However, the trunk did not decay, and it eventually was used to fashion the Cross.

That's awesome, both the painting and its medieval theme!
