karma

A personal, mixed media piece utilizing the elements of fantasy and symbolism to explore the concepts of duality and karma.

 

1. The flames represent the burning of the samskara's (the subtle mental impressions of our past actions).

2. The skull and the knife both hold the lotus symbol, representing the cycle of death and rebirth.

3. The compass depicts the concept of declination, with the arrow pointing slightly off of magnetic north toward true north.
