Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, both are naked, a symbol for their innocence and untaintedness. This is how Chagall portrayed the first human couple. They lived in an idyllic world, surrounded by flowers, plants, fruits, trees and animals. Mellow tints such as pink, pastel green and earthy-brown. Chagall carefully selected these colours for this painting. Their life and love, fresh and close to nature. Note that shades of brown also stand for enlightenment, experience and confidence.
