About this creation
MocOlympics Round 1: My category of choice: FALL

MocOlympics main page

Sin. It’s an ugly word, but the word itself is a bouquet of roses compared to the stench behind its meaning. The FALL of man was the beginning of that sin on earth. Sin begins with rebellion and a rejection of God's word, and is portrayed here at the moment Adam and Eve, the first two humans, succumbed to temptation and defied God.




Eve: Here, Adam. Try this.
Adam: Sweet, baby. You know, I’m gonna blame this all on you later.
Snake: Yesssssssssss.




Biblical reference: Genesis 3:1-6 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the other wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the women, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.




I could go on and on about the spiritual dimension of this build. This week, I throught through half a dozen mini-sermons I could include here, but I'll focus on the Lego. I wanted to make the garden as lush as I could manage, so I went for as big a variety of plant forms as I could think of.






Althogether, I spent 12 hours on this project, plus 3 hours on ideas that didn't pan out. The tree was frustrating at times - getting the branches to stay put, and sticking all those little leafy things together. The dark leaves inside the tree are meant to simulate shadows. They certainly helped fill out the tree, too.




The reflection of the tree in the water was inspired by Sean Kenney’s Trump International Hotel and Tower. Kenney displayed the reflection of a cloudy day on the face of the tower – it’s unbelievably beautiful.

Thanks go out to my wife, who let me sleep in twice this weekend so I could pull late-nighters.

Thanks to God, who provided a remedy for our fallen condition.

And thank you for viewing!

Eden, the land of the strategically placed bushes... Anyhow mate, I just wanted to say that I am finished and have broken the ice by posting first. On a less official note, I wish you the best of luck, and it has been a supreme honor to go toe-to-toe with you. Can't wait to see your creation! ~Blake

Wow, how'd i miss this? :o What a lovely tree, and the wide variety of vegetation is truly inspired. I love the different levels of the build too, and the green/brown/sand green stripes in the base match the rest of the creation perfectly. Props on going for the reflection in the water too btw, i love that kind of attention to detail. :)

Quoting Commander Hawk ...if only they hadn't defied God in the past,the place would be completely beautiful.
I agree. I'm also of the personal opinion that, given the same choice, we all would have failed.

This is a great rendition of the classic setting, which I saw on a recent TV show is speculated to be at the bottom of the Persian Gulf prior to the Great Flood...anyway... Excellent organic work, realistic and very colorful, it captures the spirit of the category. Congrats!

I love that tree and the scenery is beautiful. I also thought the flower in front of eve was a little low. I guess when you run around naked most of your life things would tend to sag! :P

Quoting Austin Durick what made you think of 2 nudies???
Genesis. It's the first book of the Bible, which contains the true story of how God created Adam and Eve. Only after they sinned did they become conscious of their nakedness, and they were ashamed.
