Lofty says:

“The bleak specter of “Temptation” is illustrated in the washed out tones, almost as if the blood has rushed out of both these soon-to-be victims. The figure on the left is in a sort of trance, eyes half-closed and fixated on the supernatural creature, an enticing flowery head and serpent-like tail. Both figures have the dilated pupils of people on illicit drugs, and their hands are tied behind their backs as if powerless to swat temptation away. The girl on the right seems to be glancing at the viewer with panic as if to see who might catch her, an act which gets us involved in the story.” - Ursula LeBaron
