GaV EL GaV (Back to Back) 1982

GaV EL GaV (Back to Back) 1982

The Symposium,  PLATO
ref., Aristophanes;
"There were three sexes: the all male, the all female, and the "androgynous," who was half male, half female."

Jewish tradition: 
Bereshit Rabah (8) When the holy one created Adam it was androgynous. 
God created Adam double face;
Adam and Eve were born simultaneously side-by-side, or back-to-back, attached like Siamese twins. As it says twice in Genesis, "male and female It created them." To separate them, in biblical language it says that God took one of Adam's "sides;" in zoharic language, it says, "God sawed Eve off from him." (For those who say Adam and Eve were attached back-to-back, this sawing is viewed as the cause of the bumps all humans have along the back of the spine.)
