A profusion of flowers surrounds Susanna and her attendants who wash her feet, brush her hair and bring her oil. In this detail of a painting by Albrecht Altdorfer (German, 1480–1538), Susanna holds an uneaten fruit in her lap, reminding viewers that she—unlike Eve who ate the forbidden fruit—put her trust in God.
