TANTRA 1

Kundalini, known as “coiled one”, is represented here in the symbol of a snake, surrounded by the egg-shaped Brahmanda. The Brahman, also known as ‘the Absolute’, is the curve shape circumventing the universe to form the egg, also known as ‘Anda’. Kundalini is used to signify spiritual ascent.

This collection of tantric art dates back to the 1960s and was discovered in Delhi and Jaipur, India. Thirteen paintings are a part of this rare and extraordinary collection, each of them communicating a single narrative through yantra symbols. Key elements associated with Indian tantric art are higher consciousness, enlightenment, and divinity, as referenced in each of these unique paintings through the energy patterns of yantra, where creation and control of ideas are said to be possible, most often manifested through meditation. Both geometric and abstract shapes are used in the paintings as a way of portraying a deity.

TANTRA 3

In this painting, the egg-shaped Brahmanda represents wholeness (as in Tantra 1). Shiva Linga is often used to describe this type of yantra, carrying a phallic association. Shiva Linga has also been defined as the ‘all-pervading space in which the whole universe is in the process of formation and dissolution,’ according to Hindu religious texts...
