In Greek mythology, Gaia existed before anything else. The omnipresent and shapeless figure of Mother Earth, and primordial deity who bore the Gods of the seas, skies and mountains, is the spiritual embodiment of Earth and all life. Greek artist Antonis Tsarouchas tells WOM about his fine art series named after the mythological goddess, as a metaphor for the power of womanhood.
Once upon a time in a stainless-steel dream
Two famelicose smiles devoured a dead scream
Chewing on its gristle, hollowing out its dune
Crumbling stray cinders into a solid prune
In a withering wilting world upon a lyre
I smudged scorched faults with a disdain
That belied my quaking waffle’s refrain
Festering, blistering, seeping sputtering fire

The mother smiled,
the daughter too;
some innate and involuntary reaction
to a life unfiltered
spent sharing love and laughter
and secrets whispered in soft voices.
Souls that no generation could divide,
that most would never know.
We’re all water from different rivers,Yoko Ono
That’s why it’s so easy to meet,
We’re all water in this vast, vast ocean,
Someday we’ll evaporate together.

The tender spell of evening
waits not for those
who thrive on incarnations
of golden money sun drips,
emblazoned on promises
of empty success.
