Gaia, Gaea, also called Ge, Greek personification of the Earth as a goddess. Mother and wife of Uranus (Heaven), from whom the Titan Cronus, her last-born child by him, separated her, she was also mother of the other Titans, the Gigantes, the Erinyes, and the Cyclopes. Gaea may have been originally a mother goddess worshipped in Greece before the Hellenes introduced the cult of Zeus. Less widely worshipped in historic times, Gaea was described as the giver of dreams and the nourisher of plants and young children. Gaea is often shown as being present at the birth of Zeus, but in some legends she is his enemy because she is the mother of the giants and of the 100-headed monster Typhon.
This collection of statues is breathtaking in the details achieved. All the pieces are made from a composite of Real Bronze Metal and Cold Cast Resin, and as can be seen the results are quite stunning. The bronze powder mixed in cold cast resin ensures a richer, more life-like presentation giving the illusion of soft material and highlighting the soft detail of any fabrics worn by the subject. This can be seen in detail in spite of being cast in a hard material.
The collector will appreciate the care taken with the additional items that help complete the sculpture. The hand-painted color accents and antique finish further add to the depth and richness of the artwork. A great deal of care is taken in producing and finishing each piece down to the felting of the base for the protection of furniture. These are relatively heavy for their size and are packed in sculptured polystyrene inner packing then packed in a gift presentation.
