"Mother's Nature" depicts a woman's face manipulated into combining with naturalistic aspects such as a cliff, tree, cave, and the ocean. Two recognizable animals of an owl and shark come into view with a sense of movement happening in their body language. The three minor figures blending in the background represent humanity's engagement with nature throughout history. The feminine face establishes a motherly aspect since she keeps these animals near her in the frame. The crumbleness of the cave and lower area of the face present losing bits of nature throughout time as issues of climate change continue to rise. This establishes a reminder of that problem with an incorporation of some humanity of nature's form.
