ALONG SILK ROAD
Exhibition of Paintings
by Joel Blanco
Curated by Gonzalo Montañés
2017 | Oil / Canvas 布面油画
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.
