Inspired from the story/mythology about the forbidden fruit, this artwork presents an idea of how human beings came to existence based on the thoughts suggested by Abrahamic religions about the creation of humans. This artwork presents a transition from the spirituality to materialism. First of all, a glare in the center implies to a soul in its purest and the most spiritual form. From this glare, emerges a tree with rainbow colored leaves that presents an idea of the objectified aspects of heaven that the human mind interprets. The fruit that comes from this tree is believed to be forbidden and thus the figure consuming it is eventually making a transition from the heaven to the earth. This figure while being descended to earth is still going through the process of being turned into a creation that has to rely upon the nature for survival.
