Paraphrased verses from Geneses with a hidden message in red, (on the work of art the hidden message is in larger font).

AND THE LORD GOD TOOK THE MAN
AND PUT HIM IN THE GARDEN OF
EDEN. AND HE TOOK OF THE MAN'S
FLESH TO CREATE THE WOMAN. THEY
WERE BOTH NAKED, THE MAN AND HIS
WIFE, AND WERE NOT ASHAMED.

THE LORD GOD COMANDED,
"THOUGH SHALT NOT EAT OF THE
TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL ."

NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE
THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD THAT
THE LORD GOD HAD MADE. AND THE
SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN,
YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND
YE SHAL BE AS GODS, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL.

SO THEY ATE OF THE FRUIT OF KNOWLEGE.
