Birth of Mankind
Completed in 1982, Hart’s depiction of the birth of mankind is considered one of the most important commissions of religious sculpture in the 20th century. The tympanum above the central door features half-formed figures of men and women emerging from the void. Beneath stands the figure of Adam, his eyes not yet open and his body not fully freed from the surrounding stone. The north tympanum depicts the Creation of Day, and the south tympanum depicts the Creation of Night.
A frieze is a decorative band, usually above a doorframe or on the wall near the ceiling. I personally find them to be a true piece of artwork.
A truly elaborate piece of art that adorns on of America's most prominent Cathedrals.
Just like that, these words are done. Happy Saturday to all! Keep on Steemin!
I am not sure how it started, but I always put this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. And for the life of me, I can't figure out why my post doesn't look complete without it.
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
