This Is A Multi-Compartment Figurine
Original Kin is third in the series of signed and numbered
multi-compartment limited edition box figurines depicting the origin(s)
of man: the biblical account, evolution, and the extraterrestrial
theory. Adam and Eve bear resemblance to Peter and Andrea. The garden
contains four palm and three deciduous trees. One is in full leaf,
another has a tree spirit face, and the third a sign to the River
Gihon. The River Pison is also depicted. Eve is being urged by the
serpent to pick from the forbidden Tree of Conscience. Several fruits
have already been eaten. Adam is carrying a book of animal names to
assist him in his 9-5 job of naming the inhabitants of the garden.
Adam bears the scar of the rib removal. Even the Garden of Eden does
not escape the tin can pollution. And a dartboard, last seen on board
Noah’s Lark, appears again. Peter’s pet cockatiel, Spike, is sitting
on Adam’s shoulder and his dog, Murphy, is bursting through the
undergrowth. The handbag looks suspiciously like snakeskin, or so the
serpent surmises. Inside, Adam and Eve have packed a suitcase ready
for banishment from the garden. In addition to clothes they will need,
it contains their UK passports, and Dr. Who’s famous coloured scarf.
The box figurine is also home to three dinosaurs, and eight aliens
with their space ship. The mouse is hiding under the serpent.
