This piece unites the concepts of the Amazons of classical Greek mythology and real world peoples of the Amazon River valley. With this mélange of Hellenic themes and the vibrant patterns and textures of flora and fauna, she creates a tribe of wild warriors – defenders of the rainforest. Ultimately, she hopes to bring to light the ecology and startling biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest and the need to preserve this precious natural resource.
