zen ox pictures






On Monday starts the Chinese New Year. It's the year of the ox.

That reminded me of the Zen Ox Pictures and I drew a sequence of them starring me!
This is a zen practice used to meditate with the ox as a symbol of man's nature. The pictures are a metaphor of the life of man in search of enlightenment. Or a way to present guidance with the struggles in life.

To me is even more symbolic right now as Colin is an ox.

Woo! That's inspired work! I had that as a theme for one of my meditation retreats. It rocked!

Entre más conozco tu obra más te admiro y te conozco a ti, querida amiga... Este en particular me gustó mucho, justo por el año chino a punto de iniciar... ¡Una belleza y exquisitez!
