About The Artwork: 

"Your Ocean" is an intricate black-and-white illustration teeming with many symbols rich in meaning. Commissioned by my friend Steve Safranek, it tells a story of rebirth and self-discovery.

The snake symbolizes transformation and rebirth in many cultures. When a snake is depicted curling around the seven chakras, it represents the awakening of Kundalini energy - a divine force that starts at the base of the spine and rises to the crown chakra. The snake's movement, coiling around each chakra, represents the transformative power of the Kundalini energy as it awakens and rises through the seven centers, each imbued with its unique symbolic meaning.

The Tree of Life is a symbol of growth and connection, representing the unity between all living things. The Yin Yang sign symbolizes the balance between opposing forces, portraying the dynamic interplay of dark and light, stillness and movement, and the cyclical nature of life. The mushrooms connote the transformative power of nature and the ability to release negative energy and emotional blockages. Lastly, butterflies represent the cycle of change, transformation, and spiritual awakening.

Together, these symbols represent the interconnectedness of life, the balance within oneself and with the world around us, the ability to release negative energy and emotions, and the transformative power of nature and inner growth.

"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction." ― Cynthia Occelli
