Mama Earth is a visual celebration of the beauty of the planet Earth. The show encompasses feng shui (literally meaning wind and water) – the Chinese art of placement to bring balance and harmony to a physical space (e.g. bedroom). Feng Shui is based on having good energy – called chi, and its positive flow.

Throughout the exhibition, viewers will be able to enjoy the pieces from not only an aesthetic perspective, but also of chi and Feng Shui. Mama Earth will allow give viewers a chance to see our world macroscopically – in the big picture where Earth is part of the solar system, as well as microscopically on an elemental level where atoms are the building blocks of earth and what makes up not only us, but everything else.
