The mountainous, heavily wooded landscape in this tondo is Paradise. Represented around the fountain, the source of life, are episodes from the story of Adam and Eve, the world’s first couple. The earth is encircled by two spheres, which refer to the creation of the sun, moon and stars, and to the separation of heaven from the sea.
