Gaia - Poster
Artist: Alex Grey
Product Type: Posters
Poster dimensions 24 inches x 18 inches
This painting represents mother earth as the great tree, Gaia. On the left side is everything worth preserving -- the beauty of nature filled with amazing creatures. The tree is rooted in subatomic, atomic, molecular, and cellular levels of matter reaching upward through oceans, stones, soil, grass, forests, mountains, lakes, rivers, air, and atmosphere that nurtures all plants and creatures... The right side of the painting shows humanity's destruction of the web of life, the impact of sucking the energy out of mother earth. A diseased and demonic phallus stands before structures erected to suck dry Gaia's milk for the purpose of power and money. The wasteland of a disposable culture piles high and seeps into the micro-genetic pool, causing disease and defects in the Great Chain of Life.
