Yantra Art

Yantra is an ancient and complex art form of Tantric spirituality with origins both in ancient Buddhism and Hinduism. The design elements point to, and support, a central focal point used for meditation.

In the Tantric tradition the symbol for the feminine is the inverted, or yoni, triangle. Oppositely, the male symbol is the triangle that points upward. It is common to find Yantras that have as their central focus the 6 pointed star shape that appears when you combine these two triangles.

Yantras honor, and indeed favor, the feminine aspect of the Divine. Often Yantras have a black circle in the center. This is a symbol of the door into the inner world, the Soul, the “emptiness” of oneness with the Divine. In my Yantra paintings I have taken liberties with this sacred traditional form - but do so with respect and gratitude.
