The model is known as the ‘Force of Nature’ and features a faceless woman holding the world between a band. The Earth is being hurled around helplessly while the strong force is in complete control.

Quinn created the image to exhibit humans’ vulnerability when it comes to nature. The artist hopes to shed light on our false sense of security and help us be better prepared for disaster.
