This artwork depicts the touching of hands in a welcoming gesture derived from traditional Indian culture. The piece also includes subtle references to forms that are often presented at the door of Indian houses to symbolise faith and communicate a message. The hands are adorned with jewellery, two bangles on one wrist, a rakhi string and meditation beads on the other. The bangles signal that company is welcome, the rakhi suggests the guest is regarded as family, and the meditation beads suggest how the host intends to live in the moment with his guest. The wheel pattern refers to chakras or energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, again a signal to the guest that they are welcome to be themselves. And finally, the red paint in the tip of the finger, a reference to the Hindu tradition of marking spiritual and godly things. Instead of salutations, we’re here to greet our guests with soulutatuons.
DESCRIPTION - Adorn the doorway of your house with welcoming, inviting vibrancy. Let symbols and imagery tell the story of your open heart. No words are needed, just a peaceful smile. With graceful intent, bring the palms of your hand together and bow your head. You are fully exposed. Bask in complete uncertainty. Remain empty, remain blessed, remain welcoming.Signed, Numbered & Framed / Framing options available post purchase.
