My work is called "Original Sin".
For me it's very philosophical theme, full of symbols and reasonings.
As we all remember the Old Testament, the part were God created humans - Adam and Eve, he gave them freedom and the wisdom of living in love in the Arden garden. But one thing he asked them not to do is picking an apple from the tree of Good and Evil otherwise the will be exiled from Eden. But Adam was tempted by evil snake and and stole the fruit for Eve and they both partake an apple.
Lots of symbols are coming up and make us think about them. Why snake and why apple, why first humans were that besotted, so they violated the rule of God. An apple symbol of temptation and snake is a pure evil and slyness. They are also symbols of humans' weaknesses and falls. But apple as a separate object in symbolism is a symbol of infinite life circle, wisdom, heart, prosperity and fertility. And snake is something what is urging and pursuits people act in a wrong way relying on Evil. We can't forget about it.
So, in my entry I created not just a metal figure of snake lying on apple, also I showed a symbolic figure and plot is for us not only a symbol of original sin, but rather a symbol of knowledge of the new, the beginning and the creation.
This Apple is a symbol of a holistic perception of the world, a creative person's view of the world.
The snake is not a symbol of evil, but is more a symbol of wisdom, experience and knowledge, and what pushes us, stimulates and promotes discovery and inspire.
The work was done completely by hand on mokume-gane technique. I used hollow forms to make the silver and cooper elements. Made with silver clay from Metal Adventures (EZ960) and Goldie Sculptor’s Copper. This art object is about 9 cm height and 7 cm wide, weight: about 25 g.
Hope you like it!
