I had a vision of young Greta Thunberg needing armour, to be protected from the small minded, billionaire misogynists posting bizarre articles belittling and sexualizing her. Is that any way to treat a young lady who wants what we all want and need? A future. That requires a clean, healthy home.
Greta is framed by four panels, each a contemporary celtic knot design entangled with symbols of today’s world. Top left, a pyramid with a coin in it representing greed. Top right, industry and big pharma. Bottom left I had some fun mixing visual metaphors – Uncle Sam with a swastica, waving a flag with an eye like the one from Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale. Keep looking. There’s more! bottom right I’ve given you a three headed party member hydra.
The four circular designs, representing nature elements are overpowered by the larger panels.
