A plate to some of the text from John Milton's "Paradise Lost"; an epic religious poem concerning the Christian story of the Fall of Man. After the discovery by Heaven of Adam and Eve's temptation and after summoning all angels to Heaven, God sends his Son down to Earth to pass judgement on the couple. In Paradise, the Son calls to Adam, who comes forth shamefacedly along with Eve; they are embarrassed by their nakedness.
