Gaia by Alex Gray
Gaia #alexgrey To me this is also the Tree of Life and Death
In Hinduism /Sanatana Dharma, the "mother" is very sacred. There are nourishing 5 mothers; physical mother, milk giving cow, the mother land, Mother Earth (Gaia) and Gayatri-mother of the Vedas and Creation (AUM). Greek mythology tells of the later event when Uranus (Sky god Space invader, Orion hunter) "married" (ravaged) Gaia to create Chronos /Time /Karma thus destroying immortality. ..from the seed of Gayatri sprung forth all creation and the tree of life (Norse tree Yggdrasil)
