Oil on canvas, 90 x 120cm
The original is much brighter than this image. There is also many more details that are not apparent at this small size. Original took two years to complete. The figure (woman) in the center stands between the conscious and unconscious. Top left there is a small figure of Shiva (consciousness), right is a figure falling or diving into the unconsciousness. The fish, bottom right, has no fear of depth or darkness, and can swim between the surface where the light is, or to the deepest darkest depths. So why should we fear our own personal depths. The woman has her eyes closed in a meditative (conscious) or dreaming (unconscious) state. The staff in her hand represents the Will.
