Like The Age of Bronze and St. John the Baptist, Eve is one of Rodin’s grandest standing figures. Resigned, sorrowful, and tentative, Eve contains her emotion. She shares such internalization with some of Rodin’s greatest figures, The Thinker and Jean d’Aire from The Burghers of Calais among them. Eve embodies a pessimistic view of human fate, a pessimism that was to deepen with Rodin’s reading of Dante. The first model for Eve was Adele Abruzzezzi, a young peasant woman from the mountains of central Italy. Rodin explained the lack of finish, visible in both the face and body, as a result of Adele’s leaving his studio because she had become pregnant. For the slightly later, smaller version of Eve, Rodin employed a thinner English model. This second version of the pose is more refined: the form is made more sensuous by Rodin’s softening details of the anatomy and by his reducing the accidents and animation that characterize the surface of the larger figure.

FAQ's

What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.

Do you do custom work?
