Evey (Portman) wakes up in the “V’s” underground hideout. The first she saw was two paintings. One of them is “Elohim Creating Adam” by Wiliam Blake.

“Elohim”, the name used in the Bible for God, while is creating the first human being – Adam. In the picture there is also big worm that entwines Adam and symbolises the world of pain and sorrow, the devil’s temptations and also the fact that the human being is linked to sin and corruption.
