Alex Grey is one of my favorite artists, for obvious reasons. He creates stunning paintings using nature, biology, and spirituality. I’m lucky enough to own a signed poster of this painting (a gift from my wonderful younger brother).
Gaia was the goddess of the Earth in ancient Greece. The great mother of all of the universe, the heavenly gods, and the titans.
Alex Grey used half of the painting to show the wonder and beauty of nature, while the other half balances out with the destruction of the Earth mother by man. A truely beautiful and detailed piece that speaks volumes to me.
If you have the time, I highly recommend checking out more of his body of works. He is also known for doing a lot of the artwork for the band Tool.
