Dinner with the Devil
1) The Satanic Verses of Bones Banez
2) The Paradise Lost Gold Folio
Musical accompaniment to the dinner is generally pleasantly classical and there are interludes of poetry or interactive conversation among guests on many topics.
The dinner was conceived to be what Percy and Mary Shelly would produce at their castle in Switzerland, possibly entertaining characters like Lord Byron.
ALSO ON DISPLAY: A Major Art Discovery!
The Yuko Nii Foundation alabaster is likely the only surviving replica of this Gislebertus Adam, which makes it highly significant. It is “the completion of a great masterpiece!” What the Adam looked like was unknown to the art world until NOW…at the WAH Center!
The original 12th century Eve is currently on display at the Louvre Museum Paris.
“The (Yuko Nii Foundation) alabasters (of Adam and Eve), especially the Adam one, promise to be of great importance to the history of Romanesque art.” Jeff Rider, Professor of French and Medieval Studies, Wesleyan University
“These are fascinating pieces (your alabasters of Adam and Eve)…” Robert A. Maxwell, Associate Professor, Institute of Fine Arts, The James B. Duke House, NYU
“Eve has a seductive quality that no other 12th century artist has equaled. If the other block (Adam) had survived, we would most certainly have had in it the completion of a great masterpiece” T. S. R. Boase, President of Magdalen College, Oxford.
