I originally made this for an art competition called Water Art. This year's theme was water helps everything happen. I expressed this theme by personifying nature, earth, and water. The woman is wearing a dress made of plant, soil, and water. This is supposed to make the viewer assume that she is mother nature. However, I made her hair emerge from the earth's continents to allude to her also being mother earth. I never really a difference major enough between the concept of earth and nature to warrant separate personifications. The blue man is supposed to represent water. I wanted to depict a loving, healthy, dependent, human-like relationship between water and earth to communicate that water is the driving force of life, and life everything happen.
I was unable to enter the Water Art competition due to their un-user-friendly pdf application.
