A citrine geode suspended in leather on a steam bent zebra wood and steel frame. The geode’s back has been reinforced and stylized with a composite textured back.
Geodes form when bubbles of water vapor and carbon dioxide form inside hot lava as they rise from the depths of the Earth’s core. As the lava cools, it solidifies as an empty shell of igneous rock. Over time, different minerals will flow inside and form a crust of crystal formations on its inner surface. As humans, we have an unexplained fascination with crystals - they are revered as being vitalized with subtle energies, and are unexplainably sought out for their preciousness. The truth is that minerals play an essential role in the genesis and existence of life, and thanks to Earth’s vast mineral richness, we exist today. Thats why we have such a fascination with these wonders.
Gaia’s Womb is cradled by a vaginal frame, a symbol of earthly genesis, the only one we know of. We all have the opportunity to protect and cherish life, yet humans often disregard the environmental cost of their actions. Gaia’s womb is meant to remind us of how important it is to respect and nurture our earth.
