ADAM AND EVE – THE FALL (5.5 in. L x 4.25 in. W) – WG.176
ADAM AND EVE – THE FALL: A 12c panel from Ardmore Cathedral, Co Waterford. Romanesque art depicts feelings rather than symmetry. This couple with nervous knees are awkward and uncertain, as the implication of the forgotten act weighs upon them. “She took the fruit thereof and did eat and gave to her husband with her, and he did eat”. (Genesis)
The scene marks a fundamental change in the relationship of God and man, nature and man, woman and man; the balance has altered, the woman as equal has been dispossessed. The reign of the goddess has ended.
The serpent, and emblem of immortality (because of its ability to shed its skin and hibernate underground) is also an emblem of the wisdom of the goddess; it is now a harbinger of death. “Whilst Adam slept, Eve from his side arose: Strange his first sleep should be his last repose”. Anon
HAND CAST IN KINSALE IRELAND BY WILD GOOSE STUDIOS: Each of these beautiful reminders of our faith is hand cast in bronze and in iron. A shell is formed in metal then filled with a resin. Each piece is then polished, leaving a deep rich patina. This remarkable technique creates a plaque that is not only beautiful but lighter in weight as if solid, would be very heavy and very expensive.
