“Winter Night” is the first watercolour of the series “Gia, daughter of Earth”, which portrays the adventures and experiences of a kind spirit of nature, protector and friend of plants and animals.
In this first composition, Gia is immersed in a deep, peaceful dream inside a cave, which serves as a winter refuge to a bear and her two cubs. Gia, present on Earth since the origin of life itself, lies asleep in harmony, covered by the warm embrace of Mother Bear and the radiant glow of the moon and stars. The two cubs huddle at her feet, her dear brothers of nature, who dream about the coming of spring, since they want to run in the mysterious forest’s streams with their jovial sister of two wings.
While they sleep in the winter night, a fox is watching them with nostalgic eyes, remembering the time when he was also small, playing with their little brothers of orange tails, and always under the watchful eye of a mother. Now, as a grownup, he knows those magical days will never return. However, even though he hardly would ever see her mother and brothers again, he does not feel sad or lonely, because he has a great new family that loves him, with Gia leading them up.
And the Snowy Owl also knows this, while he is on Mother Bear watching a couple of fraternal bats. Owl, like Fox, is not alone, because all the creatures of the forest are together even when they are not close, performing a function that keeps nature in balance.
And Gia, daughter of Earth, will always be there to care for them since the origin of life itself…
