“Adi Yogi”, 34 inches x 39 inches, Nitram Fine Art Charcoal on 300gsm paper

"The "Adi Yogi" symbolises the secret of Kundalini Chakra in Yoga. In this representation the ultimate attainment of "Nirvikalpa samadhi" is manifested. The face of the infant symbolises "Creation", the face of the old ascetic symbolises "Knowledge" or "Gyan", the face of the lion symbolises "Destruction". These three characters represent the states of human consciousness. The snake symbolises the awakening of the "Kundalini", a form of divine energy which transcends into the bliss of Yoga.

I prefer Nitram Charcoal for its fine grain, purity and variation in tonal qualities. Nitram is a premium Fine Art Charcoal that allows me to create with ease.”

~ Arindam Gupta
