Bible historiale (Français 152, f. 15): Original sin

Moments from the story of the fall: Adam eats the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. On the opposite side of the tree, Eve seems to be in coversation with the serpent, portrayed as having the head of a woman, the wings and body of a bat and a long tail.  Both Adam and Eve have covered themselves with fig leaves.  In the upper left-hand corner, God observes the scene.
