    DESCRIPTION



    Gaia



    Gaia is the Mother of Nature and the personification of Earth. She appeared from Chaos and is the bringer of all life.

    Design Gaia!

    - Setting can be anything! You don't have to stick with the Greek myth.
    - Go wild in your design: Gaia is the mother of all life so her appearance should show her grandness.
    - It might be interesting to think of the human influences on nature and how this would reflect on Gaia's appearance.


    Some reference:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaia_(mythology)


    Good luck!

    They paved my face with concrete.
    They stripped me of my green dress,
    leaving me with black rubber and twisted metal.
    My breath is now the stench of death,
    for brown water is my only sustenance.
    From my bosom only flow the black tar
    man is so fond of and my fertility is forever gone.

    Nevertheless, I thank man for my stone face.
    Since eyeless I will never behold how mankind rapped its own mother.

    Gaia as the spirit of the earth, not happy about what people are doing to it and trying to preserve it as it was meant to be.

    Gaia right after she was being born from Chaos. She is playing with the ingredients that will create the Earth and nature upon the earth.

    And behind door nr ooooooone… Gaia!
    Her hobbies are gardening sculpting and designing life on this side of the Milky Way.
    Make no mistake about this easy going lady; she’s as a-moral as lightening when having entire species for breakfast with just a pinch of extinction. A bit of an eco freak she’s estimated to have recycled 99.9% of all species that have ever lived here into brand new evolved versions of themselves.
    Tough as a coffin nail she enjoys documentaries on oil spills and nuclear winters with a sardonic grin on her cute little face; when she started out, this piece of rock didn’t even have as much as an atmosphere, so what could be more amusing than watching poor harmless humanity play stupid with itself? She loves parting gifts and she’s got her eyes set on ruins.
    You are bound to have a world of fun together with our lovely bachelorette as she’ll be providing you with her very own romantic backyard where she’s got an overdose of life with your name on it. Do enjoy your date you lucky rascal you, ‘cause at the end of the day …life’s a killer

    Considered what it would be like if Gaia was represented by multiple forms. The earthly natural entity and the anthropomorphized "avatar" that handles all the communication with other beings, but both one and the same god.

    Yeah... I pretty much just got sick of this one after a while. Threw in some brushes to make my life easier for the time being. I hate this painting, but here it is. My final Gaia.

    Gaia. The First Spirit. Mother of all Life. Daughter of Chaos. And ultimately - the victim of mankind.

    Gaia, represented by a tattooed goddess covered with the foliage depicting the earth's bounty and accompanied by two other life-giving sources. The dots on her forehead represent her third eye, I just thought it would make it look more goddessy.

    Final. Somewhere along the road a lack of focus crept in but: fun round anyway

    "Here's our mother earth. Bound, scarred and dirty and at last vomiting out humanity because she's sick of them torturing her all the time. Gaia's dying and this is her last resort."
