This "seer", or diviner, stands in front of a map, holding a candle and gazing trancelike into space . The map in the background represents his "Inner World", an interior spiritual landscape traversable by those willing to look within and find their own paths to illumination. This piece represents the meditation on, transcendence to, and discovery of an interpenetrating existence woven within our everyday world.
As in all my works, the twigs represent the figures past experiences/lives.
A nearby candle illuminates the map, suggesting that, although previously unattended, the map was waiting to be discovered. The figure, however, has discovered the map of the inner world through his own means and light (the candle he has brought).
