The Golden Key
This painting is a metaphorical piece about the landscapes of the mind that occur during transcendental meditations. On the lower left a figure sits in concentration before an altar. In one hand is a lock, signifying a question or puzzlement, in the other hand is the end of a cord running along an inward path. Also some acorns on the altar imply a relationship with the tree that the cord ascends before crossing the multicolored bridge that the figure's double follows to a higher space upon a stack of books brought in the knapsack that the cord is tied to. The second figure passes a second candle, signifying another point of concentration. In the higher space sits Ganesh in an energetic form, holding the image of a key. This image projects through the window of the higher space, through a split in space and time, signified by the compass and square beside the pocket watch to return to the waiting figure below.
