Heartbeat (of the medicine bird)
180x130cm egg tempera and oil on linen
A traditional Shipibo-conibo quiquin (pattern-song-design, Colibri design) rendered into one-point perspective, then mirrored. The bolder lines emphasized to create a mandala-design.

I then depicted a heraldic archetypal forms, attempting a balance between location in the cone of vision, but also depth receding into the cone of vision.
