In 1880, Rodin envisioned a grand concept for his masterpiece, "The Gates of Hell," proposing to flank it with two colossal statues: Adam and Eve, representing the first sinners. "The Gates of Hell" is a monumental sculptural group inspired by "The Inferno," the opening segment of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, penned in the early 14th century. In his pursuit of perfection, Rodin drew inspiration from two renowned depictions of Adam: Masaccio's "Adam and Eve" in Santa Maria Novella, Florence, and Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, where Adam reaches out to God. Dissatisfied with his initial rendering of Adam, which he felt resembled Michelangelo's style too closely, Rodin discarded it and embarked on a new approach. In this remarkable sculpture, Rodin portrays Adam with a downward gaze, evoking a profound sense of shame and guilt following the Fall from grace. The contrapposto stance, though intentionally unnatural, communicates the anguish and remorse that permeate his being. The age-old technique of lost wax casting was employed to capture every nuanced detail of Adam's form, and a brown patina stain was meticulously applied to enhance its visual appeal. This exquisite bronze replica of Adam stands atop a distinguished yellow-onyx marble base, proudly displaying Rodin's signature. It pays homage to the artist's ability to evoke deep emotions and existential themes through his masterful craftsmanship. Whether displayed as a standalone piece or as part of a curated collection, this sculpture of Adam is a testament to Rodin's artistic vision and his exploration of the human condition. It invites contemplation and reflection, serving as a timeless symbol of shame, remorse, and the eternal struggle between sin and redemption.
Let customers speak for us
Subject statue was ordered ove a phone call, it was promptly shipped. It was received on time in perfect condition. I do appreciate the good service provided by this seller.
I ordered this Bull for my brother and it is a beauty! It is heavy and has great details!
The statue arrived with broken rod, cracked marble base. And broken rope. I was able to glue the rod and the rope. I disputed the charge with my credit card until the problem with the cracked base is resolved. Mr. Yan asserted tha he will ship a new base. So far I have not received any update. I’m not a happy customer because the statue had been damaged before it was shipped.
Staff was very helpful in my final decision. Even printed out instructions for delivery people on the box . Speedy shipping in bomb proof box . Descending the Night is magical.

Isn’t this St Jerome? The lion gives it away.
The statue looks even more vital in person. The figures seem alive in their duel as you see and even feel their movement.
Really well done ,thank you Bronzhaus
This bust occupies the central position on a shelf of Imperial German items: A pressed felt pickelhaube to one side and a M1916 Stahlhelm to the other. Frederick perfectly compliments both items. A very nicely done rendering.
Bronze and delivery perfect
