photoblog image Adam and Eve after the expulsion from the paradise

Adam and Eve after the expulsion from the paradise

 

at the Bernward Doors (1015)  in the Cathedral of Hildesheim - Eve's first child was Kain.

 

Genesis 3: 16ff.:

To the woman Lord God said,

“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
    with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
    and he will rule over you.”

 

 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’

“Cursed is the ground because of you;
    through painful toil you will eat food from it
    all the days of your life.
 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
    and you will eat the plants of the field.
 By the sweat of your brow
    you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
    since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
    and to dust you will return.”

Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

 

 

I 'll be away for some days travelling to Lorraine/France with my French language course.

It is fine art, Philine.

God comes across as a bit of a nasty person, though.
Philine: This is a myth about the creation and the characteristics and behaviours of the human beeings, you should not take each word literally. Many thanks, Ray!

Les sculptures de cette porte sont magnifiques.
Philine: Je suis d'accord avec vous, Martine, merci bien!
Ces sculptures sont magnifiques Philine.
Profitez bien de votre séjour en Lorraine!
Philine: magnifique vraiment, merci beaucoup, M. Richard! Nous allons visiter Metz, Nancy ...
Bonne journée
I always find it interesting how they achieve some 3-D with these!
Philine: You are right, Elizabeth, many thanks!
These age-old stories have been depicted for years in all kinds of ways and places, Philine, haven't they. Lest we forget!

Enjoy you travels in France!
Philine: I am always fascinated with the presentation of this age-old story. Heel bedankt, Ginnie! I hope the weather will be agreeable.

A tale designed to provoke guilt

I wish you bob voyage in Lorraine, you will soon be fluent in French, if you are not already
Philine: I think a human life without becoming guilty might not be possible.
Oh, I am a beginner in French, but I love this language. Merci beaucoup, Monsieur Chris!

Very impressive, The infact feeding is very avant garde for its time, I should think.

Passez un bon moment en France!
Philine: The infant feeding looks very realistic indeed. The bronze doors are magnificent inded.
J'espère passer un bon moment à Metz et Nancy. Merci beaucoup, Monsieur Alain!
I had to correct my comment because I thought at first that I was looking at the birth of Christ. A terrific piece of art Philine, I had not heard of the Ottonen before. It is always good to discover something new, especially pre-Renaissance art. Have a good trip to France.
Philine: These doors are magnificent indeed and full of realism. Some months ago I posted another piece of the door, Adam and Eve leaving the paradise. I think the artist might not have dared to show the infant feeding in this way. Many thanks, Chad!
The bas relief here is so well done.
Philine: I agree, many thanks, Mary!

That Kain was a greedy young boy.
Philine: Oh yes, he was and he got his punition. There was violence at the beginning of the human history. Heel bedankt, Louis!
The same kind of skills expressed as in the Baptistry door in Florence.
Philine: Yes, you are right, but in Florence the name of the artist, Ghiberti, has been known. Many thanks, Prof. Wilson!
A fine work Philine.
Philine: Yes, a fantastic artwork indeed, the Hildesheim Cathedral belongs to the UNESCO world heritage. Many thanks, Bill! Now I have to go to bed, for tomorrow I have to stand up very early.
i am not too sure about the contents of the text but they have surely provided plenty of art opportunities and your photos are in support of that, Philine. have a fruitful trip ahead.
