Pumpkin Mandala

Pumpkin Mandala

I used my recent pumpkin photo to create this cosmic pumpkin life energy mandala. As I understand them, both the holographic and the fractal theories of reality postulate that all the big things are in the little things (very simplistically). I find it very interesting that I can use an image of the bottom of a pumpkin to create an image that represents growth and energy with a very mitochondrial-looking center, as though the one image, of life and energy, was always in the other of a plant, which is a product of the life and energy I am depicting.

  1. Happy sigh πŸ™‚ I LOVE what you have created and your thinking behind it. I may terrible at articulating myself when it comes to quantum theories of reality, but the subject fascinates me. Your other artwork has all of sudden gained another dimension for me. Thanks Chris. -C
