Birth - Mini Poster
Artist: Alex Grey
Product Type: Poster
Poster dimensions 16 inches x 20 inches
A tremendous flow of energy streams through the mother, who emits an orgasmic scream of pain echoing from her own birth to her death, portrayed as silhouettes on either side of her head. The Tibetan syllables, a white Om, red Ah and blue Hum appearing in the head, throat, and heart, are seed syllables of all the Buddhas, signifying the mother as a birthing Buddha. In the heart of the screaming newborn, the vajra, Tibetan symbol of the thunderbolt scepter, represents imperishable spirit. The umbilical cord will be cut, but the child will remain connected to the mother with subtle heart cords.
