About this work
As my interpretation of Gaia, inspired by already existing folklores, I’ve created my own fictitious tale about two goddesses.
Chi ruled the earth/soil/ground and Ku ruled the sky/heaven/air/water. The two fell madly in love with each other. But the other gods forbade their union, and turned Chi into a static dead tree form. Ku, in hopes of reuniting with Chi, and bringing life back into her lover, accepts her fate, sacrifices herself/body/being, and is preparing to entangle herself with Chi, to become one with her. From this, the union of earth, air, and water is born, giving life to all that exists now on this planet.
