The human body receives energy through the left side of the body, the feminine side. The moon also represents creative energy. This piece is the feminine version of its male counterpart, that features the other hand, the right hand, and the sun.
The Moon On The Left is an embodiment of receptive, dynamic, creative energy, Meant to be reflected upon as a visual meditation, it features a buddha perched inside a hand inside a moon inside a mandala in the midst of a wonderland full of palaces, ufos, swans, a black unicorn and volcano erupting in the background. This piece depicts ancient eastern philosophy in a whimsical chaos. Peace is not the absence of chaos, but the choice to remain lighthearted and embrace everything. The clouds have silver lining, made of metallic spray paint, some of the splatters go down the volcano, mandala petals and the buddha's head. This represents permeating optimism, the "silver lining" in clouds. The unicorn's horn is also silver.
