Sleepless in WI - Late Night Reliquary - Adam's Rib
Adam's Rib Reliquary (couldn't sleep tonite and worked on this idea... I may add more to it yet)
A reliquary (also referred to as a shrine) is a container for relics. These may be the physical remains of saints, such as bones, pieces of clothing, or some object associated with saints or other religious figures. The authenticity of any... given relic is often a matter of debate; for that reason, some churches require documentation of the relic's provenance.
This may, or may not be a relic of Adam's rib *S*... it's in a tree reliquary, with apples (temptation- fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil).. Jesus stands at the bottom of the trunk, and snakes are guarding, or lurking, at the top.
