Gaia Viva

 

GAIA - Personification of EARTH in Greek mythology.

 

VIVA - Alive in Portuguese with a feminine pronoun.

 

IS EARTH ALIVE?

 

I like to think it is and we're just part of it, therefore we must remain in balance and make conscious choices. I considered the environment to choose to offer my art on the Tezos blockchain because of the huge energy consumption on Ethereum. To complete my statement I'm donating 22% of the sales of the Gaia Viva Series to these environment protection organizations: Plastic Pollution Coalition,

Amazon Forest Fund by Earth AllianceCoral Restoration Foundation, Rainforest Foundation US.

The pictures used to create the pieces in the series Resilience Flowers were taken in Minas Gerais State, Brazil. This place has a type of vegetation called Cerrado, the biologically richest savanna in the world. One of its notorious characteristics is its relationship with fire. Wildfires are important to maintain and shape the landscape of Cerrado, and many plants are fire-adapted.

 

The pictures were taken a few months after a fire swept the area and show not just the resilience of this biome but also its ability to regenerate.

 

In "Resilience Flower in Pink", I invite you to connect with your resilience and remember that recommencing is always an option. From adversities, flowers can be born.
