Adam and Eve
As a direct descendant of Adam and Eve, I enjoy collecting images of my (our) first ancestors.

The Hebrew word usually translated as rib also, I’m told, means side. The latter translation seems better as Eve and Adam were one being prior to their separation. Adam and Eve are each the other's other half.

I like the rabbinic commentary that poses the question: “Why was there only one Adam and only one Eve?” Answer: “So that no one could claim to be of higher descent than any other person.”
