Adam and Eve
Botero's rotund, generously-proportioned Adam and Eve, stand strong and silent in the hustle and bustle of the Colombus Circle shops. Created at the beginning of the Bible but crafted by Botero in 1990, Adam and Eve represent the first human couple. Looming over tourists' heads, naked and unabashed, it's hard to say what they have in mind. Flanking the up-and-down elevators on either side, the two bronze giants encourage visitors to stop and stare for a bit before continuing onwards.
