In a video interview, Madonna said that she worked with Beeple on the project for one year, creating something “utterly connected to the idea of creation and motherhood.”
“Using the opening of each video is essentially me giving birth, whether I’m sitting on a tank in a post-apocalyptic city or I’m in a hospital bed in a very sterile laboratory environment, I’m doing what women have been doing since the beginning of time, which is giving birth.”
Beeple also took to Twitter, tweeting,
“INSANELY HONORED to have collaborated with @Madonna on this project. Excited for the world to see this one.”

According to the Mother of Creation website,
“These 3 NFTs are a labor of love a year in the making, as both artists partnered to connect to the idea of creation and motherhood through these visualizations.”
The website also states,
“The triptych was created with infrastructure supported by Moonpay, who will also contribute $100,000 to each charity.”
The latest launch comes amidst a torrid time for the crypto market, with Web3 cryptos also taking a tumble.
Sandbox (SAND) Price Action Bearish as Web3 Cryptos Sink
At the time of writing, SAND was up by 6.19% to $1.80. A mixed start to the day saw SAND fall to a morning low of $1.64 before rising to a high of $1.81.
SAND will need to move through the day’s $1.81 pivot to target the First Major Resistance Level at $1.93. SAND would need broader market support to break out from $1.85.
In the event of an extended rally, SAND could test resistance at $2.00 and the Second Major Resistance Level at $2.16. The Third Major Resistance Level sits at $2.51.
Failure to move through the pivot would bring the First Major Support Level at $1.58 into play. Barring another extended sell-off, SAND should avoid sub-$1.55. The Second Major Support Level sits at $1.46.
Looking at the EMAs and the 4-hourly candlestick chart (below), it is a bearish signal. SAND sits below the 50-day EMA, currently at $2.05. This morning, we saw the 50-day EMA pull back from the 100-day EMA, delivering downside pressure. The 100-day EMA also fell back from the 200-day EMA, SAND negative.
A move through the 50-day EMA would support a look at $2.25.
