Sinner, or maybe not by artorifreedom Sinner, or maybe not by artorifreedom
:facebook: Orina Kafe Artworks

Who can explain the secret pathos of Nature's loveliness? It is a touch of melancholy inherited from our mother Eve. It is an unconscious memory of the lost Paradise. It is the sense that even if we should find another Eden, we would not be fit to enjoy it perfectly nor stay in it forever.


- Henry Van Dyke

it's really beautiful. They way everything just.. goes together. It looks as if it should be a Movie poster of a book cover. i love it. Everything about this piece of work is perfect. The model has a glow to her body, especially her head&hair. She looks so mystical, which just adds to the beauty of all of this. The way the background just blurs out, the suttleness of the petals, and heck even that shine on the apple is amazing. I can't find a single flaw in this. This actually made me smile, which is great impact. And it's really original. Kepp it up!

:XD: Simply-- Fabulous! :heart:
BTW, the Lucifer/Eden story has been deliberately misrepresented by early Judeo-Christian theologians. It's akin to the Prometheus myth: Lucifer (the "light giver") gave humans the independent god-like power of free-will (the "knowledge of the tree of Good & Evil") via Eve. Prometheus did the same by giving humans fire, i.e., intellect. God and/or the gods were not amused...

Thank you :heart:
Most likely you are right. The truth is that many of the myths, stories and even persons (saints and prophets) of Christianity are based on ancient greek mythology. Like this story you mentioned. Or prophet Elijah - his temples are always built on top of mountains where we can see the weather coming (sunny day, rain, clouds etc.) and he's actually a representation of Zeus (god of thunder and the weather in general). Or Saint Nicholas, the protector of sailors - a representation of Poseidon, the god of the sea. And so many more examples..

:D You're dearly welcome... :heart:
I used to teach ancient history. If you'd like to discuss this further, Note me & we'll get started...
In any case, I recommend reading: "The Greek Myths" by Robert Graves (the definitive work on the subject)  -and-  "The Hero with a Thousand Faces", "The Masks of God" & "The Power of Myth" by Joseph Campbell. All available at your local library...
All my best...
