Tree of Life is Victor’s depiction of Adam and Eve. In the center of the painting, a blossoming apple tree is shown as the Tree of Life. On the surface of a table lie an apple blossom, an apple, and Adam and Eve, formed from the nectar of the apple.
Adam was formed first, and is shown as already separated from the apple. Eve is still in the process of forming. Thus, Victor shows that the various manifestations of the Tree of Life are related to each other, ever changing one into the other.
As an apple tree draws its sustenance from sunlight, as do the manifestations of the Tree of Life get their life force from God of the Universe, depicted as the light from the sun. The branches of the Tree of Life reach upwards toward the divine light.
Adam and Eve, male and female, are the complementary opposites of each other. With that in mind, Victor uses the complementary contrasting colors of red and green as the basic colors of the painting.
