Dear friends and scholars

a very interesting interpretation of Paradise was painted in the early
17th century by Jan Bruegel the Younger, a grandson of the Elder. Adam
and Eve can be dimly made out in the background, but the animals in
the foreground are looking at something in "our" direction, and they
seem quite alarmed. They are probably noticing Satan as he approaches:

The same concept, but simplified, was worked out by Gustave Doré in
his illustrations for PL:
