Unclouded purity and clarified perception, qualities associated with mirror, have found reflection in this work of artist. The mirror "correct" the Present exposing a better image of man and women and of their union. Here, the painting returns us to a legend about "paradise lost," natural state of nudity of the first people, Adam and Eva. This myth has received a wide embodiment in art – in a poem by Milton, an oratorio by Haydn, and frescoes by Raphael and Michelangelo. The true work of art certainly includes the dimension of time. Here, the foreground represents the present and the background the past ("Golden Age.") At the same time, the background seemingly personifies the future, its dream, and eternal love.
