Adam and Eve and the Serpent

Lately I have been taking a look back at my recent work and noticing a lot of references to serpents. My fascination with the use of serpents began when I was a very young child and my father telling me the story of Adam and Eve and the evil serpent. I thought the story was so dark yet romantic.
