Mother Earth
Canada’s Mother Earth rises 15 metres in a prairie where horses and bison roam. Deer amble down her outstretched arms. Her hair is planted with geraniums and petunias, her skin is santolina. Mother Earth is universal, transcending nationalities and the ages, and is the basis for every living thing. At Mosaicultures, Mother Earth takes its cues from North American aboriginal culture and was inspired by a speech reportedly delivered in 1854 by Chief Seattle during his meeting with then President of the United States, Franklin Pierce.
