I took another long walk today and came across Fuengirola’s Garden of Eden (Jardín del Edén) — in sand. Eve (Eva) apparently wasn’t much to look at. (Click any image to enter the Garden.)
|BEHIND ADAM: A PRAYING CHERUB AND SATAN.
AND, OF COURSE, A ROMAN TEMPLE IN WATER.
|BEHIND EVA: CUPID/EROS.|
|TOO BAD THEY ALREADY ATE THE APPLE.
THE SCULPTOR CLEARLY HAD MORE INTEREST IN ADAM THAN IN EVA.
As I headed back home, I passed a bar blasting Abba’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight).” I haven’t been able to get the song out of my head. At first I saw no reason to include the music video with this post. Then I took another look at Adam…
And I thought maybe that’s exactly what the sculptor had in mind.
