Biblical Adam from Gates of Hell Statue by Rodin 18HPN# 3752
This Auguste Rodin sculpture of the biblical Adam is taken from a much grander piece entitled The Gates of Hell. As the first man to know the meaning of shame, Adam is adeptly illustrated by Rodin with lifelike vigor and dignity. Now considered to be one of the greatest sculptors of all time, Auguste Rodin had a turbulent early period enduring the boredom of several art schools and poverty as a young artist living in a nation engaged in war. However, when France recovered from the Franco-Prussian War, Rodin was prepared with sculpture models that would re-adorn France.
Adam from Gates of Hell Statue by Rodin is made from bonded stone with a bronze finish, black base, 18"H. Weighs approx. 12-14 lbs. (PN 3752)
