1. Gay Liberation
The Gay Liberation Monument is a monument featuring the sculpture Gay Liberation by American artist George Segal, located in Christopher Park along Christopher Street in the West Village section of Manhattan, New York. The monument was completed in 1980 and was notably the first piece of public art dedicated to gay rights and displaying solidarity for LGBT individuals, while simultaneously commemorating the ongoing struggles of the community. Located at the northern end of the park, the art installation commemorates the Stonewall riots; the monument was dedicated on June 23, 1992, and is part of the Stonewall National Monument. The sculpture itself features two pairs of life-like, life-size individuals made of bronze and painted white; the monument depicts a standing couple and a seated couple.
Adam is an 1880-1881 statue of Adam by Auguste Rodin, first exhibited at the Paris Salon that year entitled The Creation of Man. That year he was also commissioned by France's Ministry of Fine Arts to produce two colossal figures of Adam and Eve, which he suggested using to flank his The Gates of Hell project, then ongoing. For the figure of Adam he reused The Creation of Man, whilst Eve was created separately. The work was first cast in 1910 and bronze casts of it are now in the Art Institute of Chicago, the Musee Rodin and the Metropolitan Museum of Art among others.
3. The Gates of Hell
The Gates of Hell is a monumental bronze sculptural group work by French artist Auguste Rodin that depicts a scene from the Inferno, the first section of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy. It stands at 6 metres high, 4 metres wide and 1 metre deep (19.7×13.1×3.3 ft) and contains 180 figures. The figures range from 15 centimetres (6 in) high up to more than one metre (3 ft). Several of the figures were also cast as independent free-standing statues.
The Martyr or The Little Martyr is a c.1885 plaster sculpture of a naked dead or sleeping female figure by Auguste Rodin, now in the Musee Rodin. It is a study for a figure in the top left of Rodin's major work The Gates of Hell, though he later removed the corresponding figure from Gates. It was originally exhibited at the Exposition Universelle, representing the Bronze Age, and is now in the Musée Rodin in Paris.
5. The Three Shades
The Three Shades is a sculptural group produced in plaster by Auguste Rodin in 1886 for his The Gates of Hell. He made several individual studies for the Shades before finally deciding to put them together as three identical figures gathered around a central point. The heads hang low so that the neck and shoulders form an almost-horizontal plane. They were to be placed above the gates looking down on the viewer.
