      Jesus is the new Adam, and Mary as the Queen of Heaven is His spouse and the perfection of Eve. / Perhaps the most explicit example of this felix culpa is displayed in the van Eyck Ghent Altarpiece. The artist used the same model for the shockingly nude Eve and for the Virgin Annunciate and her elevation to the heavens as the Regina, married to her own resurrected Son. Similarly, the model whom he used for Adam reappears in the inner presentation of the Altarpiece as Jesus in the role of the Regina’s Spouse.
