Wheel of Life ..
Just in …
I've wanted to draw my version of the wheel of life for a long time , but always found the idea of it pretty daunting …
To be fair I was right .. This is definitely the most intense detailed graphic I have ever drawn …. Definitely done a fair bit of soul searching in the process haha ..
A brief breakdown starting from the inside ..
- The wild boar, pigeon and snake in the hub of the wheel represent the three poisons of ignorance, attachment and aversion.
- The second layer represents Karma.
- The third layer represents the six realms of samsara.
- The fourth layer represents the twelve links of dependent origination.
- The figure holding the wheel (Yama) represents impermanence .
- The moon above the wheel represents liberation from samsara or cyclic existence.
- The Buddha pointing to the moon indicates that liberation is possible.
