Would you Adam and Eve it?

The detail in the new sculptures which decorate the arch above York Minster's west door is amazing. Go here, second picture down, for more information. As indicated in an earlier post, the Genesis Cycle tells the story of redemption from creation to consummation.

The post title is Cockney (East End of London) rhyming slang for, "Would you believe it?" 


  1. Nice detail! I love the stories they tell.

    By the way, no renovation in sight for the building I posted today.

  2. Wow...that is detailed! Very cool.

  3. This one has to be enlarged to be appreciated. The details are fantastic! And not just Adam & Eve, but all the different kinds of animals on the other row. I would love to see the rest of the story as told by this arch.

  4. This is ART, and you have shared this with us by a very artistic and nice way.
