Seductive Eve

Adam and Eve by the German Renaissance painter Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1533). Here Eve is downright feeding Adam and the snake seems her worthy companion.

Lots of Gestures

Potiphar’s Wife by the Italian Baroque painter Gian Francesco Barbieri (1591-1666). That seems all about gestures, I also didn’t know that she was already in bed.

Bloody Lolita

Another Salome by the French Symbolist painter Gustave-Adolphe Mossa (1883-1971). Mossa loved these cruel contrasts, she got also cut off hand and especially disgusting is the cat besides the head.

Cool stylish Bathsheba

Bathsheba (1570) by the Italian mannerist painter Giovan Battista Naldini (1537-1591). It’s a cool elegant reduction on the essentials.

Women with Snake

Women with a Snake by the Belarusian photographer Eugene Buzuk. Sure that neither Eve nor Lilith are mentioned here, but the biblical context on woman, sin, snake etc is obvious.
