In myths and fairytales, the ancient gods and goddesses are presented as protagonists in very human stories. But how must they have seemed to humans living close to the splendor, terror and awe that is everywhere in the natural world? With what beautiful and terrible otherworldly qualities would they imbue their ideas of an Earth Goddess? Perhaps a being compellingly surreal, dreamlike, poised and beautiful, twining many complex elements into a strangely balanced whole. This is more of a surreal visual editorial than an actual depiction - it depicts the idea of Gaia. The bold figure is enmeshed with other forms in finer lines as if "Gaia"embodies and gives rise to natural forms.
The original is roughly notebook sized - please note this when selecting a print size.
