Eve's Crown / by Sonya Yruel

Eve got a raw deal in the whole biblical story. This was the initial thought artist Jana Rains had when she began crafting a crown for her. And I have to agree, afterall, she was created from one of Adam's ribs, and then blamed for offering him some delicious fruit. Sure, sure, a serpent offered her the forbidden fruit, but the fruit was also knowledge, and who doesn't want that?
