Forest Mother/Meža Mate, was inspired by a personal joke from my own mother. During forest walks, she used to thank the ‘Forest Mother’ for any accidental finds, such as berries or mushrooms. This stems from Latvian pagan mythology, where nature was the embodiment of god: every natural phenomenon has been personified. I have created my own perception of the Forest Mother, as a figure of a Latvian woman robed by trees, mountains and rivers in a traditional folk dress.
