The name given to these creations is inspired by the fundamental myth of our civilisation, where in ancient times, there were magniﬁcent gardens in Mesopotamia between the two great rivers Euphrates and Tigris, the cradles of our civilisation.
In this garden lived the ﬁrst Men named Adam and Eve. God had given them the right to eat all kinds of fruits in the middle of this paradise except a tree, the tree of knowledge of good and evil. A creature in the shape of a snake tempted them and pushed them to taste the fruits of this tree. Finally, they were thrown out of the Garden of Eden.
The trees of knowledge are made of feathers, one of the ﬁrst tool man used to write and pass the myths and legends that shaped our civilization.
