The overall look of this mandala reminds me of a star portal, a stargate, that is fully open, allowing us a view of a world with two suns. The vertical square tube feels like a place where you could jump into, like jumping into a worm hole.
While taking a studio colored pencil class, where each of us works on our own projects with guidance and evaluation from the instructor and fellow class mates, I decided to play with watercolor pencils. This was my second painting from that experimentation.
This is one of the first mandala designs I created after our 1999 trip to Egypt, It’s pronounced ‘rah’. It was inspired by the hieroglyphs I saw on the ceiling of Hathor’s Temple in Dendara. It depicts the sun with pulsating rays coming out from one section of the sun.
