This drawing began as an illustration of a person floating in an isolation tank, experiencing the effects it can have on the way we think. Soon it progressed into something else. I've always been interested in Buddhism/Hinduism and I began to do research on chakras. I was particularly fascinated by the Crown chakra, and how it is directly linked to more abstract ways of thinking. The crown chakra has 1000 petals.
The background is a grid formed by Fibonacci-sequenced spiraling arms. There are sixteen arms going clockwise and sixteen going counterclockwise, resulting in an ever-expanding grid. I don't know if there are 1000 "petals" made by the grid I drew, but it was more meant to illustrate the concept more than anything.
I could literally go on typing for hours about everything I've put into this piece, but I'll just explain one last thing. In the second attached picture, I took a closer shot at the head. There is a quote surrounding the circular design in the person's head. It reads as follows:
"I am the master of my own domain, for my mind is my compass and the world lies within, not without."
Anyways, I won't blather anymore. I just thought I would like to share with you blades the fruits of my efforts
