The Root Chakra is believed to be a survival centre making it the most instinctual of all chakras. Stabilising the foundation of the body is important to sense completeness. My paintings interpretation of Mūlādhāra Chakra aims to remind you of the essence of this Chakra. The colour for this Chakra is red. I have painted a Red glow around the circle to radiate strength and vitality. The red colour is also powerfully linked to our physical and emotional needs of survival and self-preservation. The circle itself has a rough rocky texture which is symbolic of Planet Earth. Hints of Blue can be seen through the Gold. The Gold is symbolic of the Sun but also serves as a reminder that our Health is our Wealth.
