“The Hand of God” by Auguste Rodin

“The Hand of God” was modeled by Auguste Rodin and attempts to compare the art of sculpture to the divine process of creation. A right hand, emerging from the earth, holds a lump of clay from which two struggling emergent figures, Adam and Eve, have been modeled.

The work presents Adam and Eve entwined in a fetal position and emerging from a lump of earth cradled in God’s hand. Rodin said,

 “When God created the world, it is modelling, he must have thought …”  

In this sculpture, Rodin depicts this metaphor of God’s hand cradles the material from which male and female emerge.

#ALP: Car

My dream car used to be a Camaro. When we were raising our kids, I drove a 7-seater Caravan. Now I have my mid-life crisis car: a Mustang.

What was your first car? What do you drive now? Or what would you drive if money were no object? Or maybe you prefer an alternate method of getting around.

When my husband and I go out to dinner, we never order dessert–we’re invariably too full. What’s your favorite? Vanilla ice cream? Peach cobbler? Jelly beans?
