Digital collage project dedicated to the personification of two related zodiac signs, Libra, the seventh sign of the zodiac, and Scorpio, the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac, depicted as fierce women.
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.
For the representation of Scorpio, I imagined what a Scorpio woman would look like – an exotic, elegant, and enigmatic beauty who is accompanied by a scorpion, her protector, and surrounded by a tropical landscape.
The visuals were 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!
