Gaia: Igniting the Phoenix

Lisa Spielmaker's avatar Lisa Spielmaker

My piece this year is about Mother Earth and how it our human responsibility as society to take action to preserve the environment. I am going to depict Mother Earth as a Phoenix. No matter where society takes the health of the environment, Mother Earth will do what she needs to do to purify or cleanse herself. I choose the Phoenix to represent the power and determination of our Mother Earth. Our Earth has been here long before us humans and knows how to survive. Earth uses the constant cycles it has gone through and has transformed its self many times by fire or ice. It will be reborn anew and always rise from the ashes like the Phoenix.
