I thought she is holding a nondescript fruit in her left hand? That’s probably my imagination.

Weirdly, her left hand appears unfinished.

Well, she is gorgeous.  One sympathizes with Adam.  Might well be worth losing Eden for.

The whole picture shows Eve in full frontal nudity. It's a little bit Miltonic in that "Shee as a vail down to the slender waste / Her unadorned golden tresses wore / Disheveld"--also in that it implies the emotional subjection that Adam confesses and Raphael warns against. 

I don't recall any other blondes in the Klimt oeuvre.
