“From One Earth” is part of my Culture Series. This series was created to explore the many ways that we cope with the cultural challenges we face and how we find meaningful moments amidst these challenges: connecting to nature, to each other and through creative expression.

The figures in “From One Earth” were inspired by a dance duet, capturing the feeling of working and playing together peacefully and joyfully. This spirit mask portrays that as humans we each come from different backgrounds, cultures and races, and we can live in harmony. It gently reminds us to honor everyone with respect and kindness.
