A photo journal of 
The Garden of Eden
NYC eARThWORK by Artist Adam Purple
 
Though The Garden of Eden was tragically and purposefully destroyed on 8 January 1986 to make way for a building, we are pleased to present some wonderful photographs of this eARThWORK in progress and in its full glory.  Created out of twice-sifted brick rubble, horse manure bicycled from "Zentral" Park, and potash made on-site, its artist "zenvisioned" it "as ultimately expanding through contiguous area to a 'Great Circle' hemispheric sculpture." The Garden of Eden adorned Manhattan's Lower East Side for more than 11 years.
