About The Artwork: 

Step into a world of beauty and mystery with "Mother Tree," an awe-inspiring black-and-white illustration featuring the iconic Venus of Willendorf. With branches stretching like wings and roots extending deep below, this piece captures the cosmic and earthly elements in one mesmerizing statement.

The Venus of Willendorf is a prehistoric figurine dating back around 28,000 BCE. It is a small, paleolithic statuette of a woman with exaggerated curves, particularly her breasts and hips. The Venus of Willendorf is often considered a symbol of fertility, motherhood, and abundance

Roots are symbols of stability, grounding, and connection to the earth. They can represent the idea of being firmly rooted in one's beliefs and values and provide a foundation for growth and transformation.

Branches are symbols of growth, change, and expansion. They can represent branching out, exploring new opportunities, and taking risks. Branches can also represent the interconnectedness of all living things as each branch grows and extends from a central trunk.

Stars are symbols of guidance, inspiration, and hope. They represent reaching for the stars, pursuing one's dreams, and seeking higher truths. Stars can also represent the infinite expanse of the universe and the vast human potential.

When combined, the symbolism of the Venus of Willendorf, roots, branches, and stars can create a message of abundance, transformation, and connection. The image can represent the idea of being firmly grounded in one's values and beliefs while pursuing growth and change.

"In a way, you are poetry material; You are full of cloudy subtleties I am willing to spend a lifetime figuring out. Words burst in your essence and you carry their dust in the pores of your ethereal individuality." — Franz Kafka
