Earth 22: Rivers

Artist Statement: Rivers

Rivers carve landforms, allow for transportation, shape history, create boundaries, connect people, and are necessary for the support of many forms of life on earth. Their intricate and immense network cannot fully be described on this small globe. This globe celebrates the goal of returning all lakes, rivers, and streams to a pristine and stable state.
