The Serpent Driven From Eden
The Serpent was one of a trio of wooden figures that included Adam and Eve, the last two unfinished. The Serpent was carved out of boxwood with a laminated plywood tail. I roughed out the shapes of Adam and Eve in old pieces of oak and then discovered that the wood was too far gone to carve. Only the Serpent remains. I have always had a soft spot for the Serpent as she appears in ‘Genesis’ and ‘Paradise Lost’.
