This painting represents a woman's profile with a lotus background in a graphic line style. The lotus is a great symbol in itself as it symbolizes the regeneration of the soul, as well of the metaphor of life. We too have to go through mud and different shades of waters before rising in the air in order to bloom. We too need and are made of the elements of earth, water, air and ether (fire seems to miss in the Lotus metaphor...)
This painting is part of the "GOD Within" collection, which depicts Mahen's own inner deity, by drawing it inside a silhouette, generally a feminine one.
