Created in expansive scale, this meditative, intuitive work is inspired by ancient cave paintings of India, aiming to evoke subtle mystery through intricately interwoven layers of paint to create an uniform interplay of light and subtle darker areas. This luxurious painting is ideal for a large entryway, a variety of corporate locations, public places/interiors and so on.
