Marie Curie Reflection
My collage depicts the famous female scientist, Marie Curie. Marie was born in 1867 in Poland and died in France in 1934. During her life, she discovered and studied radium and polonium with her husband. For her research, she was awarded two Nobel Prizes and was the first person ever to win twice. The motif in my background is the radiation symbol. I chose this symbol because Marie studied radiation throughout her entire life and she died from radiation poisoning. The emphasis in my collage is Marie Curie’s face, which I developed using line, shape, and proportion. I chose to depict Marie Curie because she sparked a whole generation of female scientists which is inspirational to me.
