Fernand Pierre was born in Carrefour, an infamous slum near Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 1919 and died in 2002. His career began as a carver of wood, when he fashioned small animals and other small wares for sale. In 1947 he was discovered by the Centre d’Art where he continued with his ceramics studies.
The Garden of Eden, also called Paradise, is the biblical “garden of God” described in the Book of Genesis and the Book of Ezekiel. Genesis 13:10 refers to the “garden of God”, and the “trees of the garden” are mentioned in Ezekiel 31. The Book of Zechariah and the Book of Psalms also refer to trees and water, without explicitly mentioning Eden.
