The man in this piece is holding the prana mudra with his hands. This is the mudra of life, of vitality. The mountain man draws life-force straight from the core. In the painting the core is literally the core of the earth, but metaphorically it is the core of you, your center. The colors in this piece are significant in their order, it represents the chakras and the flow of energy from the core to the crown.
Original, one-of-a-kind painting by Katherine Rose Ayala.
Rose Ayala is a California native born at the base of the Sierra Nevadas in Nevada City. She attended SAIC and received an AA from Ananda College of Living Wisdom with an emphasis in Inspirational Arts. Her 'real' art education has come from her travels in daily life throughout it all; from WWOOFing in Ireland, to living in a spiritual community in northern Oregon, and all the multitude of trips in between. She gains much of her inspiration from art/music festivals, nature, and introspection. Rose loves the interaction that art can provide within a community and will jump at any opportunity to be a face painter for children's events. Most of her art is created in her secluded studio in a California State Park, where she currently lives with her ranger sister.
