Description

Sculpture of a tree of life with large leaves and various fruit, on two sides of the trunk are Adam and Eve shown in relief. Next to the fountain basin lies the snake with a girl's head and the half-eaten apple. The tree gives water that flows back to the source, from which the tree is grown, symbolizing the eternal circle of life.
