Ashwamedh, 2008

Nylon Spinnaker

30 x 30 feet

Ashwamedh, in Vedic mythology, is a white sacrificial stallion. The mythology describes an elaborate ritual related to military victory, but the concept of the Ashwamedh has also come to represent (in the Arya Samaj tradition) a spiritual power that connects one to the Prana, or breath. Ashwamedh embodies the tension that is air, or breath, between the fleeting and the life giving.
