Earth Personified

Artist Anna Sorokina shares and discusses her work which personifies the Earth, “not only because the Earth is our Mother, but also because when pictured as a human, it’s easier for people to relate to it”.

Powered by the Sun and the Earth

Here, a human is being “powered” by the Sun and the Earth by using them every day to breathe, eat, and simply exist. No matter how much the human acknowledges their importance, they continue to keep him/her alive.

Because of climate change, the Earth is getting hotter every day. “At least I can use it to fry eggs!” an ignorant human says.

Here, the Earth is dying (thank you, oil and gas!) and Venus is giving it a cardiac massage.

Earth knows best

This is a wordplay on “Mother knows best.” The Earth is pictured as a scientist who knows best what actions need to be taken for it to feel its best in this age of climate change.

The Earth is getting a shot because it has a virus — climate change — its fever is going up and our planet is getting hotter.
