This image portrays Mother Earth as a large central figure clad in a flowing pink gown. She points with her right hand to her left breast to indicate her role in the nourishment of humankind, while her left hand points to the ground, a gesture that references her connection to the Earth. Gibran created this image near the end of his life as an illustration for his book The Earth Gods (1931).
