Atlas - Jennie Sutherland
A beautiful and intricate, limited edition print from the ever so talented Jennie Sutherland.
ATLAS was the Titan god who bore the sky aloft. He personified the quality of endurance. Atlas was a leader of the Titans in their war against Zeus and after their defeat he was condemned to carry the heavens upon his shoulders.
Atlas was said to have been skilled in philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy. In antiquity, he was credited with inventing the first celestial sphere. In some texts, he is even credited with the invention of astronomy itself.
With our spin on this meaning behind atlas, fascinated with the insect world, a praying mantis is depicted as Atlas in this Jennie Sutherland piece, with the idea that insects are the true rulers of the natural world, the planet as we know it.
Usually going unnoticed with their powerful force, camouflage and strength, these warriors are undoubtedly the ones who keep the world turning.
Each design is originally hand drawn before printing and is signed by the artist.
