"You Are Here" by Vajra 2014. Acrylic on Wood 12"x12" Sold. This painting is a microcosmic map of the universe incorporating the concepts of polar unity, spin, the torus, and the fractal nature of everything. In the center, the cosmic heart is composed of two hearts coming together, spiraling toward singularity at the center. Flowing out from the cosmic heart is a toroidal web-grid, emerging as hot yellow and cooling toward purple as it feeds back into the black whole, and out through the center once more. Like the mythological Net of Indra, each junction, or fractal node in the web, glitters with a pearl representing all other beings and things spiraling through existence, emerging, merging and re-emerging through the cosmic heart.
