Jataka Tales of a Budgie-Sattva, Part 2


Back to Paintings


The Budgie-Sattva experiences a consciousness set against an environment interwoven with extra-terrestrial influence and psychedelic morphologies. The mystery of psychotropic formations penetrate his hardened ideologies, breaking apart the crystallized frames of past mystical experience in a moment serving as prelude to radical re-awakening. The boy is vastly older than his form, subliminally aware of his cosmic origins, hesitating and waiting for imminent transformation; the chrysalis suspended in a-temporal moments before the veil falls irrevocably away. His condition is neutral both from lingering sleep and ingrained meditation built into him from previous lives as a wandering ascetic.
