Mother Earth/Africa Adorned Paper Dress (made entirely from paper and twine)
“The roots we have with mother nature run deep. We need never feel lost or alone, for we are one with all living things around us.”
Mother Earth is fierce, tribal, beautiful but deadly, mother-creator and protector. Her dress is made entirely out of paper and twine.
Her skin is dark like the rich soil from which all life comes. She wears a white dress that is beautifully textured, ethereal, the color of purity, wholeness, innocence, new beginnings, awakening, openness, the color of possibilities – but it is also extremely fragile.
The twine represents the glue, the roots, that sew, knot, and tie things together, it represents repair. Always mending and taking things that are damaged, broken fragmented, and making them whole again. Always giving us hope for healing, awakening, and possibilities.
