Pangea e Pantalassa

Mother Earth

Pangaea was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras, forming approximately 300 million years ago. It began to break apart around 200 million years ago up to the early stages of the continental drift. The name Pangaea is derived from Ancient Greek pan (πᾶν) meaning “entire”, and Gaia (Γαῖα) meaning “Mother Earth”. The single global ocean which surrounded Pangaea is accordingly named Panthalassa.

In this work the artist explores the shapes of a human face as if it was an orogenic process of the birth of life on our planet. It’s a kind of tribute to life that a woman receives within herself.
