New York / Berlin (bpb) Adam and Eve are the name of the pair of candleholders by Marco Bodenstein. The European designer and sculptor created these excellent works in the tradition of Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst and Ernst Fuchs. Marco himself knew Salvador Dalí and other contemporary artists of the 20th century.


In his artwork, Marco Bodenstein combines the religious mysticism of Adam and Eve with the erotic. The female and masculine symbols are discree, yet recognizable in the candleholder. It is not only a work of art, but also a useful object for a home with individual ambiance.
