The concept:
"MODERN ADAM AND EVE ", reformulate for the engraving artwork Adam and Eve by the German Artist Albrecht Dürer, submitted in 1504 By which he presented the story of the first sin of mankind, which consisted in the sin of Adam and Eve for their lord and their eating from the tree which they had Forbidden About it, but Satan come in the form of a snake and tempt them to disobey their lord, It should be noted that the story of Adam and Eve is almost non-controversial in all religions and heavenly books, where God created for them what they can cover their genitalia or they were not seeing the genitalia of themselves and also none of the other creatures see it, which the scholars and interpretation differed in the fact of their dress before the sin, those who said that it was Kind of nails, whom said it was illumination and whom said it was the dress of paradise.
But when they fell into sin, their genitalia were exposed to each other because God punished them, and made them bare of the clothes that they had clothed before the guilt and sin. And the punishment showed them their genitalia, And stripped of their clothes and flew from them, So that each one of them saw their genitalia, So that each one of them saw what they had hidden from each other. When their genitalia appeared ashamed, they had to cover their own bodies with leaves of the trees of paradise. "Albrecht Dürer " portrayed this scene with the existence of the paradise tree, that is in the middle of the work as if it separates between the paradise and the world. Satan incarnated in the form of a snake and a Satan appeared in a snake dress introduces an apple to Eve and she extends her hand to take it and another hand hold another apple and she is standing in the scene between the devil horns of Centuries of Capricorn and bull, As for Adam he portrayed him as he clinging to paradise, which appears in his hand which holds one of branches of paradise tree. He looks at the eyes of Eve while she is looking at the apple, and at this part we see a strange remark that's might have meant "Albrecht Dürer " it is that the distance between the eye of Adam and the Eye of Eve and the apple that the snake holds is equal and creates an equilateral triangle. In the laws of shapes the triangle means a lot of meanings such as magic, Satan and horror. One corner of the triangle is Adam's eye that looks at Eve and the other corner of her eye that she look at the apple, and the third corner is the apple.
The concept of reformulate of this artwork, we find that when both Adam and Eve fell into sin, their genitalia were exposed to each other, and made them bare of the clothes, so they covered themselves by the leaves of the trees... but Adam and Eve of today have been able to make themselves a lot of the types of clothes that covered them, but sadly...! The genitalia had moved from its original place to in the face; ... When you look at the faces of so many people in this time, you see them Naked. They do not wear anything; they need a lot of foliage to put them on their faces from the multitude of hypocrisy, duplicity, lies, self-love and racism... this artwork provides an objection to the human of this age that is self-indulgent for his lust and desires, using the vile qualities of the person to reach his desires.
Work was adopted on the same set of elements used by "Albrecht Dürer " adding modern garments to Adam and Eve and changing the place of foliage that was covering the original genitalia of their bodies and put it on faces.
آدم وحــــواء العصــــــر
إعادة صياغة لعمل (آدم وحواء) للفنان الألماني " ألبرخت ديورر " الذي أنتجه عام 1504م وقدم من خلاله قصة الخطيئة الأولى للبشرية والتي تمثلت في معصية آدم وحواء لربهما وأكلهما من الشجرة التي نهاهما عنها؛ لكن الشيطان يتمثل في شكل ثعبان ويغويهما حتى يعصيا ربَهما، وقصة آدم وحواء لا خلاف عليها تقريباً في جميع الأديان والكتب السماوية، فقد خلق الله لهما ما يُداري العورة وكانا لا يريان عورة أنفسهما كما لا يراها أحد من المخلوقات الأخرى. وحقيقة لباسهما قبل المعصية أمرٌ اختلف فيه أهل العلم والتفسير؛ فمنهم من قال إنه كان من جنس الأظفار، ومنهم من قال إنه كان نوراً، ومنهم من قال إنه كان من لباس الجنة. ولكن عندما وقعا في الخطيئة انكشفت لهما سوآتهما (عوراتهما) لأن الله أنزل عليهما العقاب وأعراهما من الكسوة التي كان كساهما قبل الذنب والخطيئة؛ وظهرت لهما عوراتهما، وتهافت لباسهما وتطاير تبرياً منهما حتى أبصر كل واحد منهما ما ووري وحُجب عنه من عورة الآخر. فلما ظهرت عوراتهما خجلا، وجعلا يُغطيان عوراتهما بأوراق من شجر الجنة حتى تكون لهما ستراً. وقد صور " ألبرخت ديورر" هذا المشهد بوجود الشجرة المعنية في منتصف العمل وكأنها تفصل بين الجنة والدنيا ويوجد عليها الشيطان في ثوب الثعبان يقدم إلى حواء تفاحة وهي تمد يدها لتأخذها وبيدها الثانية تمسك بتفاحة أخرى وهى واقفة في المشهد بين قرون الشيطان المتمثلة في قرون حيوان الجدي وحيوان الثور، أما آدم فقد صوره وهو متمسك بالجنة الأمر الذي يظهر في يده التي تمسك أحد فروع أشجارها. وهو يوجه نظره إلى عيون حواء بينما هي تلقي بنظرها إلى التفاحة، وهنا نرى ملاحظة غريبة ربما قصدها " ألبرخت ديورر " وهي أن المسافة بين عين آدم وعين حواء والتفاحة التي يمسك بها الثعبان متساوية وتصنع مثلث متساوي الأضلاع. والمثلث في قوانين الأشكال يعني الكثير من المعاني منها السحر والشيطان والرعب. فأحد زوايا المثلث هو عين آدم التي تنظر إلى حواء والزاوية الأخرى عين حواء التي
تنظر إلى التفاحة، والزاوية الثالثة هي التفاحة سبب الخطيئة.
ومفهوم إعادة الصياغة نجده يعتمد على أنه عندما وقع كل من آدم وحواء في الخطيئة وانكشفت لهما العورة أخذا يغطيان عوراتهما بورق الأشجار خجلاً حتى يسترا أنفسهما... أما آدم وحواء العصر فقد استطاعا أن يصنعا لنفسهما الكثير والكثير من أنواع الملابس التي تغطيهما، ولكن للأسف...! قد انتقلت العورة من مكانها الأصلي لتكمن في الوجه؛ ولما لا؟!... فأنت عندما تنظر في وجوه الكثير من الأشخاص في هذا الزمان تراهم مفضوحين... عرايا... لا يلبسون شيئاً؛ يحتاجون الكثير
من أوراق الأشجار ليضعوها على وجوههم من كثرة النفاق والرياء والكذب وحب الذات والعنصرية...إلخ
فيقدم هذا العمل اعتراضاً على إنسان هذا العصر الذي يُعري نفسه من أجل شهواته وملذاته مستخدماً أحط الصفات الذميمة للوصول إلى رغباته. وقد أعتمد العمل على نفس مجموعة العناصر التي استخدمها " ألبرخت ديورر " مضيفاً الملابس العصرية لآدم وحواء مبقياً على التفاحة التي تعني ملذات كل عصر، ومغيراً مكان ورق الشجر الذي كان يغطي العورة الأصلية ليوضع على وجه كل منهما.
