Man out of Heaven
5/12. Limited edition of 12. The plate size is 4 ¼ x 4 ¼ inches and the mat (the white frame) is 7 ½ x 7 ½ inches.
The print represents the pelvic area of Adam with a leaf covering his genitals. The image is based on Albrecht Durer’s classic depiction of the biblical story, in which Adam, tempted by Eve, bites from the apple of knowledge and realizes that he is naked. For this reason, humans were banned from the heavenly Garden! It is a symbol of violence as man (and God) blame women for what happened in the Garden! And at the symbolic level, this paved the way for our Western patriarchal society.
The auction will go “live” at 12:00PM on Monday, June 22 and will conclude at 12:00PM on Monday, July 06.

The auction platform will add a 5% surcharge to be paid by the buyer. The works sold would be delivered by the artist to the school, which can later be picked up by the buyer, all in a safe, social distancing environment. All works will be listed as “unframed” unless stated otherwise.
