Artist's description

In the Greek mythology Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life, but the origin of Gaia has to be found in prehistoric Greece. Although the word ‘Gaia’ is of uncertain origin, it is best translated as ‘Earth’.

Gaia was the mother of Uranus (personifying the sky) and Oceanus. In this painting the divine Gaia stands against a background of the ocean and sky.
