    About The Work

    This painting is Werner's interpretation of The Garden of Eden at nighttime, as he imagines it becomes a hellscape after dark. Animals lurk in the darkness behind an emaciated Adam and Eve, the red eyes of a bull-headed dragon pierce through the darkness.

    "This was my idea: how about if the Garden of Eden was only a peaceful place during the daytime? Once night falls, dark and cruel animals appear, including bats and giant rodents, ruled by the Snake King (here a giant dragon with a male and a female head). Those frightening creatures represent the suppressed, destructive libido of Adam and Eve (painted upside down from each other to show that they are opposites.) Innocent, they only dream about sin and their dark, unrecognized desires." - Constantin Werner
