GRANNY SMITH  VENUS & BRAMLEY VENUS

Adrian uses the apple as a symbol of purity, beauty and knowledge to encourage us to

question how we view the human body. He adds complexity to this question by  using

an older model and giving her in one sculpture a granny smith, an apple renowned for

 its regular form and long shelf-life, and in the other sculpture a bramley, an apple

better known for its highly irregular shape and sour taste.
