Carl Jung is in the astronaut suit. He is discovering the archetype of the circle in the collective unconscious. The American flag on his sleeve is upside-down as a sign of distress because the day I was painting that area, W.Bush attacked Iraq. The side panels are vertical slivers from ancient circular mandala painted in a more traditional Tibetan style. The left panel is from the "Wheel of Life," (Hell). The right panel is from the "Shambhala" mandala, (Heaven). The work is on three separate canvases and detach for shipping.

My mother died in May, 2010. I used some of her ashes in the pigment for this painting. Note the female Buddha above the door holding a cup of tea. My mother was a great tea drinker. The branch on the ground in front is a symbol of her letting go of her physical body and entering through the temple door.
