Kundalini Rising – Charcoal/Paper, 24”x 39”

Kundalini - Richard Jacobi Drawings - The Mythologies
Intense organic images rippled up my spine as I experienced a performance by a classical dancer from India.

After the experience I was emotionally drained but wanted to visualize the images that rose up my back. I drew a line at the center of a vertical piece of paper and began drawing upward from the bottom. The rhythmic organic forms grew spontaneously as I drew and seemed to culminate in a crown chakra at the top. Later, the drawing on its side (its present form) appeared to be a kind of landscape but energy at the center rose again vertically and culminated in another crown chakra at the horizontal top.
