One of the fundamental myths is that of the lost paradise; the past as a Golden Age. In certain spiritual traditions, the lost paradise is imagined as a garden. In others it is an ideal landscape where all is in order, beautiful and fruitful. With the passage of time, in some traditions it also came to stand for the life to come. The Quest for Paradise is well-illustrated with reproductions of paintings, mosaics and textiles on the theme of gardens and the paradise legends.
