Tree of knowledge

The Fall of Man by Lucas Cranach the Elder

The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil was one of two named trees in the Garden of Eden, the other being the Tree of Life, and the only tree Adam was commanded not to eat from.[1] It was from this tree that both Adam and Eve ate from and, consequently, were thrown out of the Eden. The fruit from this tree opened their eyes and allowed them to know good and evil.
