This sculpture is a personification of the first Greek goddess, Gaia. In Greek mythology, she is considered the mother of all life and the soul of the earth. This piece is a visual inspiration and reminder that our planet is beautiful and precious, and, as its current caretakers, we need to take steps to better protect it. We can all help by making conscious choices that can, in aggregate, ensure the preservation or our environment for future generations to enjoy.
