This porcelain sculpture is a parody of the old story of temptation in the Garden of Eden, exploring the historical symbol of the apple as the fruit of knowledge. The main figure, placed in the centre under the tree, has bitten the apple and is now aware of her surroundings; she has the “knowledge”, which can also be viewed as a loss of innocence. A Taste of Paradise is a collaboration between Chris Antemann and the Meissen manufactory.
