This kite is a contemporary work of art by the son of a prolific tantra painter in Jaipur. While it has some of the visual characteristics of a yantra symbol, it is not recognized as tantra art but rather as an ode to one of the most celebrated festivals in India.

In India, the kite symbolizes high aspirations and an elevated vision. During Makar Sankranti (or Uttarayan), flying a kite is an important ritual. The kite festival happens every year when winter ends and spring begins, with the sun moving into Capricorn. It represents the start of a new season. This painting was found in Jaipur, India.

Sold individually or as a pair with Indian Kite Painting No.2.   6” x 11.5” , gouache on paper, 2000s, Price upon request

Two intersecting snakes, also known as Kundalini, represent a cosmic power. As stated in tantra, the coiled-up energy sits within us and is unmanifested, and is said to be a dormant holder of psychic power. The arousal of the Kundalini, beginning its ascent through the psychic areas within the body is what helps to transcend our limitations.

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.
