A Perfect Composition

Adam and Eve (c. 1620) by the Italian painter Guido Reni (1575-1642). This painting from the heyday of the baroque era is nearly perfectly composed. The two perfect bodies like a pair of scales, the evil snake in the center and the the fatal apple. The lion, the rey among the animals, seems already very upset.
