These two effigies were commissioned last 2001 by a client from Hawaii to be used as the couples charms & a fertility doll.
The required features were very simple. The woman should have bigger bosom and the man should have large phallus that both can be tied together using using bronze and silver wire believe to bring good luck, harmony and bronze ward off bad spirits.
For some its something not to believe especially in modern days but the practices of phallus & bosoms in form of effigies exist in ancient history all over the world.
I have come up an idea to design two effigies I called adam and eve made of solid bronze. Each can be separated or lock them together in 11 positions using their legs and arms.
My first design for these series came out very exotic but almost lost the simplicity of art and the essence of spirit of each figure became explicit and flat. I seek for the originality of my piece bearing the pure or innocent outlook for the final figure. The moldings of each sculpture take me back to the native life resembling the past history that also reflects my archeological interest.
