Carved Panel (SN2842)

Carved Panel

Flemish Oak carved Panel, circa 1580.  It is very well carved in deep relief depicting Adam and Eve and the Tree of knowledge.  Eve is holding the Apple, and the serpent, partially lost is wrapped around the tree trunk.  There are losses, possibly resulting from the Puritan views on nudity, and the base has been trimmed.

Dimensions:  Height 38 centimetres, Width 27.25 centimetres
