This piece is my tribute to our Earth.

The concept behind it, is simply, by abusing our Earth, who are we really hurting? I felt the concept of an "x' on her back would effectively relay that message.

Thanks for viewing. :)

    Thank you to all. :)
    To Clint Spaulding:
    I toyed with the idea of a full nude done tastefully, but in the end felt it wasn't any more representative of one's connection to nature. I feel that nudity symbolizing a closer connection to nature is a symbol created by people, not the planet.

    Unfortunately all I can think about when I see this is the Pilot episode of X-files where Mulder makes a red x on the highway in the forest. Im a nerd, wow. Its a great picture though, I think you pulled it off beautifully its just a pity I can't see it for what it is haha.

    Great way to get a message across visually, but I have to be honest, at first glance, before reading your statement, I thought of Fern Gully.
