As Madonna needs no introduction, we'll tell you that behind Beeple is graphic designer Mike Winkelmann, who you may know from the Everydays
series, which sold for over $60 million dollars and catapulted him to international fame. Wanting to show her vision of motherhood and womanhood, the iconic singer contacted Winkelmann to create a triptych in the style of Bosco in the year 2300. The titles of the three works: Mother of Nature

– the transforming nature of butterflies –, and Mother of Technology
– science as an advancement of life –.
