Italian sculptor Lorenzo Quinn certainly thinks so, and his multiple-sculpture series, The Force of Nature, embodies this ideal. Each of the roughly 2.5 meter (8.2 feet) sculptures depict what appears to be Mother Nature in a gravity-defying pose, swinging the Earth around her.

“Having seen the ravaged coast of Thailand and the Hurricane that affected the Southern States I decided to create a sculpture dedicated to Mother Nature,” Quinn explains on his website. “This would be reminiscent of the early statues made as peace offerings to the Gods in the hope of quenching their anger.”

Slightly different versions of this piece have been displayed around the world, including England, the United States, Monaco, and Singapore.
