This piece contains a Shri Yantra (also "sri" or "shree"). The Shri Yantra is a "sacred geometry" that originated in India and is composed of 9 interlocked triangles. To be drawn correctly, it must include concurrency, centricity, and equalaterity and is widely considered to be very difficult to draw without errors at the intersections. There a many variations of the Shri Yantra and there are 3 main forms: Plane, pyramidal, spherical. This image combines 2 styles (plane spherical (also called "Kurma")). The Kurma is considered the most difficult to draw correctly since it contains curved lines. Around the Shri Yantra, there are 2 rows of lotus flower petals representing chakras and 3 circles for the past, present, and future existing together. In the center there is a silhouette of man in a traditional lotus position with 6 orbs of light in the colors of 6 of the 7 chakra colors found in many Western adaptations of Hindu Yogic chakras (all but "Ajna" (the 3rd eye chakra) which appears on the 8 inner lotus petals). Lastly, the image contains an "earth square" representing a temple containing 4 doors/portals facing outward to the 4 cardinal directions (North, East, West, & South). Mandalas have been known in India and Tibet since 3,000 B.C. dating back thousands of years, Mandalas have been used for inner healing, meditation, enhancing intuitive & sixth sense powers and to connect with the eternal universe. The Shri Yantra is considered one of the most powerful and is associated with abundance, affluence, and prosperity. The butterfly is included to represent transformation.
