ADAM AND EVE - THEIR DEPICTIONS


For more than a millennium they have no qualms to depict Adam, Eve, and the prophets (Isa, Musa, Ishak, Harun Kidir ...) into vivid human forms replete in engravings, paintings, sculptors during the Renaissance period especially.

From time to time they would provoke the Muslims to enjoin into such mode of showing religious piety. They would make caricatures of Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. 

"Adam and Eve" engraving by Marcantonio Raimondi (c. 1480 -?)

Depiction of god as a human form warning Adam and Eve not to taste the forbidden fruit!



People, black slave, deer, snake (as satan) were around when Adam and Eve taking the forbidden fruit?


Depicting god as a human being?

Surely their god is not Allah. Wallahualam.
