Adam and Eve


Meet Adam and Eve - one of my favourites of the many sculptures in Monaco. By Fernando Botero and sculpted in 1981. It's a sculpture that people love being photographed with - the lady usually clutching a certain part of Adam's anatomy and giggling. Adam and Eve stand in the gardens below the Casino.

That is a great statue. Love how Adam is so big, yet so small at the same time. Hee! :D

I like these Botero's sculptures, I remember when many of them have been shown on the Champs Elysées, some years ago.

Interesting arm postures - they seem to be rising to action, or embracing something. I can picture them holding armloads of wheat or flowers.

Amazing how Botero's work is unmistakeably recognizable once you become familiar with it.

Adam's private parts seem particularly shiny, sign that they are touched fairly often. You told us by whom !

Looks like they've eaten too many beefburgers and cream cakes. See obesity even stretches to MC now!

The talk today is how overweight a lot of people are today--well--it looks like it all started with Adam and Eve. MB

They seem to have eaten quite a few forbidden apples!

Virginia said...

Now that I look at these two again, I think we have a Botero sculpture here at our museum. I was planning to photograph her one day soon. Eve's sister perhaps!

I think that poor Adam might have been short changed. Gosh, I feel positively thin.

These two look like the Adam and Eve sculptures in the Time Warner Center in New York City. They've only been there for less than 10 years. His private parts are shiny too - already!
