The Birth of Psyche
Major: Art studies
About the work: Psyche the asteroid is thought to be created from other asteroids violently colliding into it and destroying the outer layer of protoplanet, revealing a metallic core. In midst of the impacts, Psyche is born. The goddess is lying on top of the metallic core with smoke surrounding her. Crystallization emerges from several parts of her, showing the different materials thought to form Psyche. Although the birth of Psyche was violent and left the goddess vulnerable by destroying her outer layers, the different possibilities of the metallic materials and crystallization on the asteroid is even more exciting and beautiful than a regular planet.
