About

This is the earliest marble carvings known by the mysterious artist identified by his initials HD incised 1927. The unidentified artist is believed to have worked in the Philadelphia area around the time of the great depression. In this piece a man and woman which may represent Adam and Eve are arranged in a circle with the arms and legs indicating some of the hours of the day from the shadow cast by the iron rod. At the top are birds and heart. HD has done religious subjects before depicting Adam and Eve in the Garden and Noah's Ark. Mounted on metal base upright.
