  • Box with Scenes from the Fall of Adam and Eve and the Story of Joseph · The Walters Art Museum · Works of Art
    back of the casket portrays Adam hiding behind a tree and covering his nudity The large rectangular plaque set into the casket s lid shows the Old Testament patriarch Jacob ordering his son Joseph to follow his brothers and the Angel of the Lord guiding his way These Old Testament images must have been intened as moral examples for the box s owner It was probably used in a private home for the safekeeping of valuables In Constantinople where urban life especially in the middle Byzantine period 843 1204 surpassed that of any western center luxury items such as boxes made of ivory and bone were in great demand and produced serially A number of details point toward such a system of manufacture many extant boxes have similar dimensions and often the borders were cut to size and used as fillers The plaque on the lid of this box with biblical scenes is smaller than the allotted space a sign that it was not made to measure Likewise the presence of peg holes prepared but not drilled through like those in the upper left border indicates that the plaque was part of a stockpile and not custom made These techniques allowed workshops to produce more affordable wares thus meeting the needs of a larger market The wealthier patrons might order a custom made box covered in ivory plaques consumers of more modest means could purchase a box decorated with the plaques and strips of carved bone that the workshop kept in stock Exhibitions Early Christian and Byzantine Art Baltimore Museum of Art Baltimore 1947 Provenance Henry Walters Baltimore 1926 by purchase Walters Art Museum 1931 by bequest Inscriptions Translation Jacob Sending Joseph out to His Brothers Angel of the Lord The Transgression of Adam The Snake Speaking to Eve Credit
