Artist's description:

Our Father who are in Heaven, please
stay there.

The Feathered Serpent.
Starting from the beginning, we are a collection of stories, stories that we have, stories in which we believe and at the same time the stories we decided to ignore, then we will revisit some of these lost and forgotten stories.
We will start with the story of creation, it is not a simple process according to Hinduism. Creation is not an entity, they are required 3, one to create, one to keep and one to destroy.
Brahma is the great father, the creator. The world comes out of his mind and he decided at the same time being the master of life and death. To this world that is mind created he decided to populate it with creatures that would be at the same time men and women in one body, with the ability to auto procreate (Aphrodite). The plan was to create these beings capable of creating children inside of themselves without outside assistance, feed them and they would take care of those children for six years, time in which the kid is self-sufficient and its parent will automatically die.
In the world of Brahma we have no mess, there would be no overpopulation. But when he created these beings out of his mind he discovered that they were all men, it didn’t have imagined out to manifest a woman.
Shiva, from the triad, the destroyer, has come to the rescue, married to the mother earth Pavarti, and reaching the mind of Brahma draws him a woman, daughter of Brahma’s mind.
He then explained to Brahma, the man, the woman, the ecstasy of becoming one. Unfortunately Brahma did not listen, with just one glance to his daughter, born of his mind and he immediately decided that he wanted to possess her.
Shiva has to sit, watching the father full of lust by her own daughter, running through all the cosmos because he wanted to have her.
It is when Shiva realized the sin that he had brought to the world. To mitigate the Sin, Shiva has castrated himself, has merged with is own wife and returning to Brahma has said:
Look, Plan A. This is how you have created man and woman, in one body, we should go back to the original idea. But Brahma already knew the bliss of togetherness, decides to separate the male part of the female part and from now on man and woman will reborn as separate entities and will know the pleasure of the union.
Brahma created a race of men and one of women, joined them and ordered them to go to populate the world. Unfortunately nothing happened, no one knew what to do. Again appears Shiva to the rescue, said men and women, start playing each other and the rest will follow.
We have done it and we are more than 7 billion people in the next chapter of the story.
At this moment Shiva and Pavarti, decide to write each one a manual on the art of seduction. According to Tantra, the great philosophy, the sexual power is the highest of all the world energies and to have the ability to control it is achieving the absolute power. The art of seduction is to build, optimize and control the power of the body, the mind and the spirit in a way to be able to generate the absolute power. In the Kamasutra, women have to master 64 skills in the arts of seduction. Some we can easily see how they fit, dancing, singing, body perfuming, yoga, but others become more elusive to the common sense, knowing mineralogy, doing crafts with ropes, ability in cocks fight...

64 are actually not 64 forms of seducing someone, 64 is the entirety of your life, if you separate your life in four stages, and divide each stage into four branches of knowledge that you acquire in your life, as result you get 16 branches of knowledge, that dividing each for other 4 we get all the aspects of the knowledge, 64. Full knowledge of the arts of seduction was equation to the mastery of your life.
The sages said that knowledge of the art of seduction and the ability in its practice was known as the elixir of youth.
