Artist's description:

Sufi schools teach about subtle centres (lata'if, "subtleties") present in the human body. Five are external: these are the four elements and the nafs or lower self. Five more are located in the heart, inside one another, so that one goes deep within. These five are the subject of this piece:
Qalb - the Heart. Its quality is love and longing, its colour yellow.
Rûh - Spirit. Stillness and tranquility, red.
Sirr - Mystery or Secret. Intimacy with God, white.
Khafi - the Hidden. Extinction, black.
Akhfa - the Most Hidden. Absolute Truth, green.

Materials used:

Acrylic on paper, hand-cut, assembled on paper.
