Namaste hands painting in acrylic paint with genuine gold leaf squares from Bangkok. This contemporary spiritual painting has a Thai yantra symbol at the bottom, adding to the sense of mystery. Orange-red hands are adorned with pinkish-purple beads and have a bright blue highlight around the edges.
While I was painting this, I felt in awe of the Thai yantra – I love the shapes these yantras have that monks use to invoke protection and good fortune. Many people feel the same way and have had tattoos made in this fashion. While I have not, I prefer to paint them!
I chose this orangy-red color for the Namaste hands because I wanted them to clearly look like no particular race of people. We are all one, and the energy I want to depict is all-inclusive.
