Raphael and the Expulsion from Eden.

Sanctus Raphael

2. The archangel Raphael. In his right hand he holds his usual attribute, a fish, while in his left he holds a pastoral staff.

1. The Expulsion from the Garden of Eden. This shows the bent figures of Adam supporting Eve, partly clothed in leaves, with a rather self-satisfied serpent now crawling on the ground. They are being driven out of the garden into a devastated landscape by the flanking angels, each one holding a flaming sword in their right hand.
