…and why does he have to speak with “whomever” behind the bush? Also, why is Adam breaking his hips? Adam Jenner?

Running the risk of looking like a fool who gives an answers to a rhetorical question: it’s God creating Adam from mud and clay.

i thought that too but the central image is adam and eve. it looks like the scene is just the garden, the couple, God, and someone else? the serpent?

It was not uncommon to combine two or more scenes from the same cycle of stories into a single illustration. In Luther’s translation of Job, you will see him sitting with his disease (Job 2), with his four advisers (Elihu appears in Job 32), and in the background the four catastrophes from Job 1.

that’s certainly true. and were it not for the fact that the entire scene otherwise is adam and eve in the midst of the garden i’d agree 100%
but of course i’m not an art historian

Neither am I. 😉 But I like those old drawings.

But you couldn’t have the center image without Adam being created (at the edge of the work).
