Leaving Eden

 Adam fell that men might be; men are, that they might have joy.” - 2 Nephi 2:25

Story Behind the Art:

 This is a moment of profound contemplation, as Eve considers the opportunity to leave the garden of Eden. This painting is meant to show Eve contemplating joy and inherent sorrow, progress and fulfillment contrasted by toil and strife. Despite the trials ahead, she chooses to move forward, “that (all men) might have joy.” - Annie Nader
