A new allegory, as there are in most ancient civilizations, in many cosmogonies. Tree of Wisdom, of Good and Evil, of Knowledge.
Symbol of nature's strength, the tree sends its roots deep into the ground, in the tangible. But it sends its branches toward the sky, toward heaven, toward the spiritual.
Wisdom, here represented as the central feminine figure, holds Man in her fruits. Some men know her and recognize her, attempting to reach her, other remain ignorant or indifferent, other finally plainly turn away from her even if She touches them.
