Gaia Wheel, 2013
oil, beeswax, rice paper, gold leaves on canvas
80 x 70 cm (100 x 90 cm with frame)
Gaia was the great mother of all: the primal Greek Mother Goddess; creator and giver of birth to the Earth and all the Universe. I present her yin side with her yang side and with a dharma wheel in the middle supported on a lotus flower. The dharma wheel is one of the oldest symbols of Buddhism.
