Artwork Explained: Vasuki

Artwork Explained: Vasuki

This week we are dropping the mystical Vasuki apparel range. This range features an incredible black and grey colorway that transports you straight to the Ancient Orient. Filled with tiny details, depth and symmetry that makes it hard to believe this was drawn digitally by hand! Let's explore the story and meaning behind this incredible work of wearable art. 

This range features an array of sacred geometry and mandalas. The literal meaning of the word Mandala is circle and circles have many sacred meanings across many cultures.

Mandalas were created as an artistic expression to symbolise the relationship between the universe and spirit. Today Mandalas are primarily used as a tool in meditation and are believed to be a helpful tool in silencing thoughts and bettering focus and therefore helping to combat stress and anxiety.

This particular sacred geometry style is an animal centred Serpent design. In history serpents are symbols relating to fertility and also as a creative life force. As the serpent sheds their skin they are transforming and transcending which is a symbol of transformation, immortality, and healing. In particular a depiction of a rising snake symbolises the ability to heighten energy within the human body. 

The artist of the Vasuki range Pyros was particularly inspired by Vasuki. In Hindu mythology, snakes and serpents are considered to be a representation of desire and Vasuki is the King of all serpents. In Hinduism, it is said that all desires rise out of the desire to be fulfilled and the desire to feel whole and Vasuki is a physical representation of this desire. 

We hope you love this range just as much as we do!
