Akhenaten 2012 . Oil on canvas
( This vision came to me in an Ayahuasca journey in 2009. In a spirit quest I was contacted by guides, light beings from Pleiades & Sirius.They showed me in the water , reflections of the flower of life. Emerging from this is the geometry of Metatrons cube, within which are all the platonic solids, which relate to the elements & energy bodys. Fire;the star tetrahedron : the Sun rays & flames of demons transmuting to Phoenixes. Water , the icosohedron, emotion, the grail. Earth, the cube, Ophiucian snake staffs that turn into psychedelic ayahuasca vines . Air in the buddhist style clouds. The Alchemy of all these elements gives us harmony, & the gift of the elixir of life…the Holy Grail. In the centre is the Pharaoh Akhenaten, the 17th dynasty Pharaoh that united egypt in the worship of the sun as a living conscious being. I met his sculpture 20 years ago in Cairo…it was emanating Peace & presence. I made a promise to paint him one day. The symbology of the Ourobourous represents the nadir of a cycle, the alpha omega point, the death & rebirth of the sungod at the solstice.
