Comments About This Piece
"Where have you been?" asks the mystic figure sitting cross legged on the floor of your root chakra. For forty thousand years, Ganesh has been waiting for your return. Solid, grounded, timeless and firmly rooted into the Earth, the Indian God of the Mulhadra Chakra is impermeable to the storm of incarnation. Like a mountain battered by winds or an old river stone circumnavigated by karmic flow, he sits patiently. The stillness in the air reveals the muffled sound of his large flapping ears. His body is voluptuous and heavy and his gaze pierces through your defenses: seeing you as you are, naked in the essence of Self. Attention is given to the heaviness of the body, the limbs are solid and full and the whole body sits firmly on the floor. On his forehead, the Mulhadra symbol is lightly dusted in white chalk. Traditional jewelry adorns the figure, though as with the other pieces in my Indian divinity series, a minimalist appearance is maintained. In no manner do the details crowd out the figure's iconic appearance. Simple jade or onyx rings squeeze the flesh instead of the typical overly ornate bracelets. The trunk comes into focus, beckoning the viewers' attention, acting as a focal point and raised in a symbolic gesture. Black and white pastel is used to emulate charcoal. However, the pastel has an oilier consistency and the grid-like substructure of the paper shows through the pastel layering. This gives the finish a pixel-like appearance, strengthening the piece and allowing for a deeper patina. "Ganesh" is an unmounted work on paper that will require a frame in order to hang.
