Vesica Piscis 2by Garima Dhawan
ABOUT THE ART
The Vesica Piscis is a shape that is the intersection of two circles with the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the center of each circle lies on the perimeter of the other. Vesica Piscis also references Shiva's third eye in the Indian tradition. It is known as the gyananakashu, the eye of knowledge, which is the seat of the 'teacher inside' or antar-guru. The third eye is the ajna chakra (sixth chakra) also known as brow chakra or brow centre. This symbol is called the "Third Eye" or "Eye of Wisdom and denoted in Indian and East Asian iconography with a dot, eye or mark on the forehead of deities or enlightened beings, and celebrates Shiva, Buddha, or any number of yogis, sages and bodhisattvas.
