Kiki Smith - Lilith, 1994 - Bronze, silicon, and glass.

“In medieval Jewish lore, Lilith was Adam’s first wife.  When she demanded to be Adam’s equal, she was evicted from the Garden of Eden.  Lilith flew away to the demon world, replaced by the more submissive Eve.  Smith catches us off guard with Lilith’s pose and placement.  Most sculptures receive our gaze passively, but Lilith stares back with piercing brown eyes, ready to pounce.”

Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, Ugolino and his Sons, 1865–67, after a composition modeled in Rome c1860–61
“The story of the Pisan traitor Ugolino della Gherardesca, imprisoned with his sons and condemned to starvation, was told in Dante’s Inferno (canto 33). Carpeaux shows the anguished father resisting his children’s offer of their own bodies for his sustenance. The composition was cast in Bronze (1862-63, Musée d’Orsay, Paris). The owner of the Saint-Béat quarry commissioned this marble.”
