This drawing begins with a flower-like mandala. I used a different composition of a geometric structure that I’ve used in other drawings. The idea was to visually express both the micro and macro expansion. The central drawing is created from two carriages that connect in counter position to the axes, creating an interesting effect of depth. Each of these carriages is formed from various objects, filled with symbols, that fit perfectly and precisely in their space. Two such objects are the pyramid, the symbol of construction, and the eye, the symbol of Horus as well as a representation of the great architect of the universe. Ultimately, they only exist, represent, and provide a sense of individual and collective identity.
