MIND WRESTLING / MURAL
Amsterdam, Netherlands. 2018
Organized by Keep it fresh projects
This mural represents the eternal inner battle in the search for beauty, perfection, harmony and wisdom. A constant struggle of thought to find balance in ourselves.
The characters are illustrated in the form of a triangle. Plato states in the Timateus that the equilateral triangle symbolizes harmony, divinity and proportion. And human is represented by the division on two of that equilateral, becoming a right triangle. Their task is to recover that "lost" part through a return, evolutionary transit, and to restore the lost equilibrium to the end of the road.
In turn these characters are backed by a golden circle as a symbol of the perfect and inmutable, without beginning or end, thus representing harmony and eternity. A constant cycle of steps towards inner perfection and the harmony of the spirit as one progresses from one stage to the other, until reaching enlightenment.
