One of the most significant archetypes to which Jung refers and has
created reactions regarding cultural and environmental resemblances
in human collective unconscious is the archetype of “Mother-Earth”.
This image gives us the idea that existence is prolific. This birth cycle
indicates death as much as it promises rebirth; an endless repetition
which pursues its life in the human’s mind.
In this project, the backgrounds are stable and contain the archetype
of “Mother-Earth”. In the foreground, all the figures depicted in their
daily routines are influenced by the background.
