Gazing into the distant heavens, GAEA delicately wraps her arms around the moon, longing for her husband OURANOS, God of the Sky. 

DEMETER sits at the edge of the moon, pondering the cycles of life and death. 


This is one vignette among many, interwoven to form REBIRTH of GAEA -- a visual tapestry synthesizing modern conceptions of our place in the universe with those of the Ancient Greeks.

3.24.11  Does not look right.  Flesh tones coming out from below, covered in mountain overlay. Overall looks good micro viewing it, but when you step back, it looks wrong, and it’s not just the overall lighting.  The lip on the far right of trees is wayyyy off.  Jury still out on the shoulder curved rock.  Such a cool element, but almost looks like a skeleton bone jutting out of her arm, or that she’s wearing warrior clothing.  Smoothness of skin texture in her front arm is really nice.  Still needs to be pushed much further (accurate) in another round, needs starry skin, not any overlay of mountain or water.   

NFTs available on OpenSea.
