Artist's Description

Photograph of the marble statue of Cain (‘My Punishment is Greater than I Can Bear’) by London-born sculptor Edwin Roscoe Mullins (1848 – 1907) and which now resides in The Botanic Gardens, Scotland, UK, Europe. Cain, the son of Adam and Eve, is shown crouching in anguish after murdering his brother Abel in a jealous rage and being condemned by God to wander forever in the wildnerness as a refugee whose lands would remain barren. The story is from the first book of the Bible, Genesis 4:13. Glasgow Museums bought the statue at the 1901 Glasgow International Exhibition. I’ve added a mezzotint to the image.
