Panel #3 - Adam and Eve: The male and female are taken from the Masaccio fresco "The Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise", created for the Brancacci Chapel, Florence, 1420. The cliff dwelling shown is based on a Kayenta Anasazi ruin from this early Southwestern culture. The Anasazi culture developed large masonry cliff dwellings from around 1100 until the arrival of the Spanish in 1598.
