    THE FLOWER OF LIFE
    生命之花

     

    2017 | Oil / Canvas 布面油画

    180cm×120cm

     

    This painting presents an organization where the Bodhisattva is located in the front, showing a superposition of backgrounds organized following the rules of perspective.


    In each of these backgrounds different designs have been added, inspired by those normally located in the geometrical center of the ceilings of the cave. These designs belong to different styles but they all present the sacred geometry representation of the flower of life, which is used to connect the different backgrounds, defining a tunnel that connects each reality and their differences into one whole perspective, achievable trough the practice of expansion of consciousness. The two-dimensional representation of this sacred geometry is the basis of most of the designs visible throughout the caves and it has been depicted in cultures all over the world, like the Temple of Abydos in Egypt, Sumerian tablets, Hebrew Cabalistic tree of life, or Ephesus in Turkey, among others.

     

    画面构图以菩萨作为前景,身后由多重背景形成透视组合。


    每一重背景各有其纹饰搭配,灵感源自洞窟顶部正中央常见的传统花纹。这些纹饰风格相异,但都蕴意着生命之花,勾勒出了一个穿越飞升的通道,把多重、各异的现实世界联结成了整体,一个扩展我们的认知、融会贯通的整体。将蕴含神意的几何图形画成平面,进而衍生出其他花纹, 这种画法在敦煌洞窟里随处可见,在世界上的其他文化里也很常见,比如埃及阿拜多斯寺庙、苏美尔石碑、希伯来卡巴拉生命之树和土耳其以弗所等。
