I've tried to incorporate as much of the poems imagery in this painting, whilst still retaining balance, and not overcrowding the finished result.
I've used a circular negative space to represent the world. The 'Mother's' roots entwine within the negative space protecting it. The rest of the body is made up of natural shapes such as rivers and cities. The Mother's bosoms are two large sunflowers; the sunflowers seeds are representations of the world painted to look like colour blind tests, as to subtly incorporate as many of the poem's emblems.
