“Mother Earth” is a sculpture made of steel, which was plasma cut and welded by the Indira Cesarine. The work displays 3 hands holding an abstracted flower, with thorns and twigs made of steel nails. Throughout history, flowers have been ripe with symbolism, with each blossom or arrangement having different meanings. They have also historically been a symbol of female sexuality and genitalia. The depiction of flowers, whether as a still life. as part of a photographic composition, or in the form of a 3 dimensional sculpture has been an ongoing theme in Cesarine’s artwork dating back to her early photography series shot on medium format film in the 90s.
