The present work by Fritz Klimsch shows the figure of Eve — according to Goethe, the concept of the "Eternal Feminine” — in a mystic, almost contemplative state. The influence of Rodin becomes readily apparent in the sculpture’s vitality of form and expression, coexistent with its sense of firmly rooted stasis and symmetry.

“At first glance, the sculpture seems to be constructed quite symmetrically; only with minimal external effort, the merely indicated alternation between standing and free leg, the slightly altered arm position gives it a heightened sense of life and vitality. The charm of the lines, the gently swelling forms of the thighs, a pronounced waistline, the rather protective gesture of the hands holding the apple of paradise, a mysterious and unfathomable smile, the inward gaze lead to the uniqueness of the interpretation of this old and ever new theme” (Braun, 1991, p. 378).
