Mother Earth Project
Inspiring Sustainability Around The Globe

As art can transcend and inspire the human spirit, Rubenstein has created an edition of this sculpture as the Symbol of Sustainability and the footprint of this project. The Mother Earth sculpture has been placed in cities worldwide, including, Washington, DC, Yaoundé, Cameroon, Jerusalem, Israel, and Guilin, China.

Mother Earth was designed by scientist and public artist Barton Rubenstein, who with his family began the Mother Earth Project in 2015. The idea that inspired the design of Mother Earth is that man is created from and out of the earth, and that there is an inherent symbiotic relationship between the two. This three-dimensional sculpture presents an ethereal pose of a human profile, projecting a vision of universality, with a stainless steel material indicating neither race nor nationality.
