“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.

Today is the seventeenth anniversary of the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. Let us never forget the innocents who lost their lives, nor how the country came together after the tragedy. Celebrate with a random act of kindness in memory of the first responders.

Here and here are some of my journal writings from that time.

America’s biggest problem is its citizens, not its politicians…in a democratic system, if a bunch of lunatics and scoundrels are in power it’s because the people chose to put them there. ~Matt Walsh

Sorry, folks–I closed the comments to keep the lid on the can of worms I opened. Yes, I know, I’m a coward.
