Symbolic Architecture: The Stupa

Stupa.

πŸ™‚ Continuing my Symbolism and Cosmological studies, by which I mean diving into the work of Laird Scranton, I’ve spent the last couple of days working on this. It’s called a Stupa. A stone structure from India, an aligned ritual shrine and thousands of years old.

When I saw a picture of this Stupa in Sanchi for the first time recently, it really stopped me in my tracks.Β  So I thought I would draw it, so I would never forget it. It’s so perfect and beautiful and the oldest stone structure in India. ❀

The picture above is 2 days into the picture and then inverting it. The other is the completed picture which I finished yesterday. (On Laird Scrantons birthday no less! Coincidence? I. think. not.)

Even though I am using these pictures to help me understand and remember what I am learning if you would like to buy the original or a print of the completed picture you can. The support would be greatly appreciated not to mention desperately needed.

“The Granary”. Completed on the 14th July is one of my favourite creations and definately my largest at 500mm X 365mm. It took about 2 weeks to complete and about 3 or 4 fineliners! Every seed of life design, all 166 of them are unique. I’m 99.9% sure of that!

The original is now on it’s way to illinois, U.S. πŸ™‚ I’m so glad, and proud to of sold it this week, and the best bit is I can buy some new fineliners and even buy some prints of the above picture to make available for anyone who’d like one.
