A set of twelve individual plates each depicting a part of the biblical Adam and which together depict his whole body.

Reference:

Fornasetti: Designer of Dreams, Patrick Mauri├Ęs, page 238, the author writes- The idea of dividing up the bodies of Adam and Eve into twelve dinner plates is surely one that no one but Fornasetti. They were made in 1954. Each plate has its attractions, but like a jigsaw puzzle they only reveal their meaning when seen together.
