Mindful Other Indigo
Full color Dharma Wheel artist's print
Available framed or unframed
I associate bright colors and ornamental gold decoration with Buddhist artwork and symbols. The association is among many paradoxes, given the Buddhist tradition's commitment to simplicity and nothingness. Joy, transmitted as bright colors, is fundamental to the tradition.
This wheel is the third wheel I created on my way to almost 600 wheels. In many ways it is built on ignorance, intuition and mathematics. The process of building a wheel requires a rudimentary understanding of geometry and mathematics. The ignorance manifested itself in not really thinking about the wheel in advance. Since the design of the wheel is neither fluid or complex, I just randomly picked bright colors to a simple wheel with thick spokes.
The result is a favorite wheel that doesn't possess sophistication or mystery but it does capture a blocky Buddhist symbol that achieves the goal, essence and communication required of any Dharma Wheel.
