EVE STANDS LIGHTLY ON ONE FOOT, HER BODY TWISTED TO ACCOMMODATE THE SERPENT SHE IS CARESSING.
In the traditional, patriarchal story of Genesis, the serpent is associated with evil, betrayal and deception, and Eve is personified as the ultimate temptress.
The serpent is often considered a symbol of sexuality as well as the benevolent teacher of Adam and Eve.
Following the serpent’s advice, Eve disobeys God’s command and brings about the downfall of humankind.
For this piece, I chose a Chinese model to emphasize the narrow and limited images of specific spiritual icons.
The notion is of ‘original sin’ where we are condemned to spend a life repenting instead of exploring more positive spiritual and emotional options.
