With a squirming baby and a bowl of fruit, a mother and her family look as if they could be having a picnic under threatening skies. But look deeper. The mother is Mary and she's handing Jesus a piece of fruit, an echo of Eve handing Adam an apple. Her far-off gaze conveys sadness at knowing what the future holds. The friend is Mary Magdalene, the poster girl for sin, casting her eyes down in penitence.
