Adam and Eve


Brancusi Adam and EveAdam, the freestanding sculpture now becomes a socket for Eve. Adam is carved in oak and Eve is carved in walnut.
Adam now has an allegorical meaning: the support the man is giving. Brancusi tries to ilustrate a belief from his village in Oltenia: that the man must be supportive of his woman.
Eva is made of soft spherical shapes to convey sensualism, while Adam is made with zigzag edges.
