The Bhagavad-Gita, the oceanly deep conversation from 5000 years ago, talks about this world being a reflection. The exact analogy expressed is the Banyan tree, with its upward roots and downward branches, symbolizing the binding nature of this material world. Yet the tree echoes a deeper reality; it turns out the tree, or the external world as we know it, is a reflection that can also point us in the right direction.
This is a 12 by 12 inch linocut. With relief printing, a cut can't be erased, and a design as minimal as this one is always risky. But when I pulled the first proof, the image resonated and I was grateful!
Have a great rest-of-the-week!
