English: fresco before and after restoration. The fig leaves were added three centuries after the original fresco was painted, probably at the request of Cosimo III de' Medici in the late 17th century, who saw nudity as “disgusting”. During restoration in the 1980s the fig leaves were removed along with centuries of grime to restore the fresco to its original condition.
Français : Fresco avant et après sa restauration. Tableau peint en 1425 (achevé en 1428), altéré en 1680, et restauré en 1980. Les feuilles de vigne furent ajoutés sur la fresque trois siècles après que l'original eut été peint, probablement à la demande de Cosme III de Médicis à la fin du 17ème siècle, qui a jugé sa nudité comme «répugnante». Pendant sa restauration dans les années 1980, les feuilles de vigne ont été enlevées, de même que des siècles de saleté pour restaurer la fresque dans son état original.
Italiano: Fresco prima e dopo il restauro. Dipinto nel 1425 (terminato nel 1428), modificato nel 1680, restaurato negli anni '80. Le foglie di fico furono aggiunte tre secoli dopo il completamento dell'affresco, probabilmente su richiesta di Cosimo III de' Medici, che giudicò la nudità come «ripugnante». Durante il restauro avvenuto negli anni '80 le foglie di fico furono tolte, così come gli strati di sporco depositati nei secoli, per riportare l'affresco alle sue condizioni originali
