This project is about the finding peace with yourself. To be authentic, not to pretend to be some one else, when you are away from home – not to forget from where you are coming, to be entire – no matter were you are.
Two characters on the print can also be interpreted as the Divine couple referred to Genesis 2:24 "therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh", we are all different from origins, habits, back ground, life style but very similar in our thoughts and feelings.

“Before humanity was nature, after humanity comes culture” - Anthropology of Human nature Marshall Sahlins 1.1 Through the notion of Indian Vedic traditional of comprehension of universe comes the mythology of Indian goddesses, representing the different part of our spiritual and materialistic life. Whole huge pantheon can be reduce to the four principal manifestations of the goddesses: - Kali (wild nature) - Durga (domestication of nature, but one who is ready to defend own rights) - Saraswati (learning by knowledge, culture) - Lakshmi (blessing of the Earth, abundance) Goddesses associated with wild nature, Gods - with demystification.

Indian philosophical tradition is very visual accessible for everybody, but in the same time the symbolic meaning is deeply hidden underneath the image. Vedic philosophy gives a way for different interpretations using multi-colored, multi-opinion metaphoric language. In this project I wanted to make symbolic graphic style more contemporary and accessible to the larger public range, keeping all symbolic meaning respectfully to the iconic canon of Hindu mythology and idols.
My challenge was to find that thin boarder between my personal graphic comprehension and the image of divinity what can be used by the devotees during the prayer ceremony. After my survey among the Hinduism followers my images can be used for puja even with a couple steps what I took from the traditional iconography, if I succeed in contemporary illustration image - readers should tell
