In this work there are symbols belonging to different traditions.
Ganesh, a Hindu deity, is represented here in a specular form: the upper part takes on an indigo hue, recalling the color of the high energies present in the human body, while the lower part is depicted with a reddish hue, which instead recalls more energies lowest.
These two energetic extremities, these opposites, come together in the center of the work in an embrace, where the two trunks form the symbol of the “Tao”, an archetype with a strong meaning of balance of the “All”.
All around, with a different material base made of plaster, a temple is depicted, a sacred place, supported by 2 columns that rotate seven times on themselves, a very important number in sacred numerology.
In every temple, of any culture, there are monstrous figures or strong and frightening animals, which protect the place from profane and evil events, and in fact, even in this painting, the columns are actually two “Naga”, guardian reptiles that in various traditions protect only Divinity.
