X RASTA GAIA? (FS23 COLLECTION)
The new FS23 collection is a celebration of our love for nature & out of respect for all Rastafarians. I (Fr3sh) respect people who don't judge people on look-wise. I have dreads myself and unfortunately, I experience look-wise judging almost everywhere I go. Well, not everyone does it, but it happens a lot. Even with all this hate in the world, you must never surrender yourself for being who you are. Be proud to have dreads! Express yourself with the new Gaia design. "It's a way of living..."
The FS21 & FS23 collections are both inspired by Gaia, the mother of all living things in Greek mythology.
The "story" here below is written by:
Regula, deTraci. "Gaia: The Greek Goddess of the Earth." ThoughtCo, Dec. 6, 2021.
"In Greek mythology, Gaia was the first deity from whom all others sprang. She was born of Chaos, but as Chaos receded, Gaia came into being. Lonely, she created a spouse named Uranus, but he became lusty and cruel, so Gaia persuaded her other children to help her subdue their father.
Cronos, her son, took a flint sickle and castrated Uranus, throwing his severed organs into the great sea; the goddess Aphrodite was then born of the mixing of the blood and foam. Gaia went on to have other mates including Tartarus and Pontus with whom she bore many children including Oceanus, Coeus, Crius, Theia, Rhea, Themis, Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Tethys, the Python of Delphi, and the Titans Hyperion and Iapetus.
Gaia is the primal mother goddess, complete in herself. The Greeks believed that an oath sworn by Gaia was the strongest since no one could escape from the Earth herself. In modern times, some earth scientists use the term "Gaia" to mean the complete living planet itself, as a complex organism. In fact, many institutes and scientific centers around Greece are named after Gaia in honor of this tie to the earth."Although Rastafari started as just one man's religious movement in Jamaica in the 1930s, it has grown into something much bigger today: over 6 million people worldwide identify themselves as Rastafarians! In addition to following the teachings of Haile Selassie I (the last Emperor of Ethiopia), many Rastas also choose not to cut their hair out of respect for him; this hairstyle style became known as dreadlocks.
The new design is a symbol of respect to Rastafari. The Fr3sh x Rasta Gaia design brings greek mythology and people that love dreads together by using the symbol of Gaia as a base and dreads as a symbol for Rastafari.!
