In looking at this scene from the Garden of Eden, Zuffi observes:
The entire scene ought to inspire love and harmony, as well as wonder at a virgin world that does not know sin: instead very close to the main scene walks a big spotted cat carrying prey in its mouth. Its bristling whiskers indicate the predator's satisfaction with a successful hunt. In Bosch's Earthly Paradise, the cat symbolizes the arrival of evil, even before the tempting serpent appears on the scene.
