Energy Goddess

(description with help from wikipedia)

Shakti is the Hindu Goddess of Energy. I've portrayed her in this design with the 7 Chakras (Energy Centers) of the Body. These 7 chakras are aligned along the vertical axis of the body from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and identify major branchings of the human nervous system These chakras are believed to be the major points in the body for metaphysical and/or biophysical energy. These energy centers are each symbolized through different colored circles or spheres and different numbers of petals of a lotus flower. The Shakti Goddess is also portrayed in the design with her "Kundalini" - a snake. Kundalini in Sanskrit means snake and it refers to the spiritual energy within every human being that lies 'coiled like a snake' at the base of the spine. It is believed that through meditation, this snake is awakened and moves through the seven chakras, unleashing energy as it passes, and culminates at the crown of the head where spiritual knowledge and power are achieved.

Hope this makes sense. Perhaps, others more learned in Buddist and Hindu religion can also offer their insight via a comment.

Thank you for your vote.

Thanks Toe. (Love your windmill too...and commented under the design.) I hope the design and my description did the Hindu mythology justice. Tried to incorporate several things into one design...yet still try to keep it relatively simple. If that makes any sense.

Thanks for the comments Webfoot and Narkus. I know what you mean about the colors. Probably looks that way due to the way that they are layered. The six colors are a light blue, white, yellow, orange, red and black. Then, I used the shirt color for the green.

Thanks for the comment! I really had fun reading up on the Hindu Mythology behind this design. Learned a lot of new information. Doesn't look like this design is clicking with the voters this week. But, that's okay. I'll use it for something else down the line. I may even do a painting based on the sketches. It was a fun one to put together.

Thanks again for leaving a comment. Really happy that you like the design.

Oh no....not at all. I just thought folks might want to verify the 6 colors. But, you're right... The way in which the colors are used together makes it look like more than 6.

Thanks Narkus!

Re: Energy Goddess


I really really love this design. It's so different from what you typically see on here (typical being pirates, aliens, and contorted/cartoonish fluffy animals).

I also really like the take on energy represented— the spiritual energy in everyone rather than physical (caffeine or "green" energy, etc).

Yeah, I seriously want this shirt...vote people vote!!!
