Editorial collage - Libra
Digital collage project dedicated to the personification of Libra, the seventh sign of the zodiac, and her scale depicted as a fierce woman.
Libra was mentioned since ancient times, first as a part of the Scorpius constellation (a claw), and after as a constellation associated in Greek and Roman mythology with the scale of justice carried by the goddess of justice, (Themis for Greeks and Iustitia for Romans). A Greek legend narrates that Themis and her daughter Astraea went up to heaven and became the constellation of Virgo, and their scales of justice turned into Libra. My aim was to create a contemporary portrait of Libra as Themis – The goddess of justice, with her notorious scale of justice that weighs souls.
The visual was created in Adobe Photoshop by using stock photos, imagination, and patience. I kindly invite you to watch my speed editing process in the videos below!
