Satan here is wearing only a cloth around his waist: his chest, arms, legs, feet are all bare; his wings are spread but hs sits on a rock at the edge of a forest bathed in a pool of sunlight; in the background in the shadows we see the dim forms of the naked Adam and Eve. Satan’s curly hair may perhaps be suggestive of the snake or serpent.
