Mother Earth

Abstract

The tree is transformed into a pregnant woman with the Earth inside her belly. There are warm and cool colors swirling around her. Her hands represent sign language "Mother Earth." Motherhood is the most critical stage for women, especially BIPOC and Deaf women. The percentages of death during childbirth, adoption, abortion, and single motherhood are still relevantly high for Black women. Black mothers should be valued to raise strong children, good households, and nuture this world as a better place for others.
