is Everyman, pulled from the waters of baptism, concrete and universal, led by
the fire of day by night, and the cloud of night by day. The whole expression of
Adam is that of tense power and inward concentration, as if seeking to
grasp and find union with that presence echoing through him from the tympanum.
The tympanum and Adam resonate with one another and within one another as
of flesh and spirit.
Maquette was the original design for the full-scale trumeau figure of Adam
commissioned as part of The Creation Sculptures at Washington National
Cathedral. Bronze edition authorized by Washington National Cathedral.
