"This Chakra is the first energetic center that differentiates man from all other life forms. This single human attribute gives us the power to express ourselves on every level of experience. To honor this gift fully, we are asked to consciously commit to expressing our truth and sing the song of individuality clearly and with integrity. To do so truly serves our spirits." (from The Book of Chakras by Ambika Wauters.)
This Chakra is the communicator and the location is the internal and external throat. It's representational shape is the inverted pyramid, suspended around the jaw and pointing down toward the heart. It's plant is the gardenia and singer Billie Holiday often wore a gardenia in her hair while she sang. My painting isn't a direct representation of her but has symbols relating to communication, music, the colour turquoise which is this Chakras' colour and a feeling of drama.
This painting is 10 by 30 inches and is done with acrylic paints on canvas.
