The Mother - Original Painting

The Mother - Original Painting


Ask a question

The Mother is inspired by the legend of Gaia who cares for and protects all of Earth’s children.
In this painting, the Mother represents the capacity within all of us to nurture and protect all animals. I have painted her with some endangered and extinct animals, to show the urgent importance of humanity embracing all of Earth’s creatures and letting them live on this planet as they should be living. After all, the Earth belongs to all of us, and when some of our species become extinct or are harmed in anyway, we are all affected.

This original painting is large: 100 x 90 cm
Painted with Acrylic paint on stretched canvas and ready to hang, it would make a statement piece in anyone’s home.
