There are three endangered plants in this painting including the Titum Arum which is sometimes considered a phallic symbol. In this painting there are vines entwining themselves around Eve’s leg. In many cultures women are endangered because they are considered temptresses due to the fall of Eve. In this painting that story is reconsidered.
