This early work already shows all the main thematic aspects which will become essential in my later oeuvre: crystallisation through integration as well as the seven steps on the spiritual path culminating in enlightenment.
On the drawing on the right side we can recognise the outlines of a person. The sheriff star on his heart chakra and the Red Indian feathers on his head are an indication he has transformed and integrated all aspects of his inner energies. He is no longer bound by limiting identifications with just one side of the myriad inherent dual facets of Life.
He has brought into bloom all the seven chakra levels (symbolised by the seven flowers on the path) and has now reached a transcendental state. He even begins to levitate since no earthly bonds can keep his consciousness enslaved, just like the bird soaring freely in the sky.
His body and mind have taken on the colours of the sun and have become filled with light, as he has realised his true nature and oneness with supreme consciousness, symbolised by the benevolent sun in the left upper corner.

Journey to enlightenment ;-)
