HIC EST CHOREA CUM ANIMA by Mondwin ()
A couple of considerations first. The title sounds like 'Dancing with our own soul'. As other posts in the past time, the latin used for title could be not correct at all because poetic needs.
About the image itself: this time it has been heavy resized because the original one is a very large picture. I've encountered some difficult in resizing it. So you have to expect a significative quality loss. I hope not too much:)
And now some words about the concept. It's opinion of mine that human people need to 'dance with his own soul' to acquire more feeling with himself and all the world around.
In other words mankind for his own integrity would require needs more harmony ad good sense (as the meaning of the French term 'bon sense').
Today people is a summa of imprisoned bodies. Anything (and anyone) is matter (in the full sense of materialism) and the soul has become an abstraction, a forgotten relic of the past concepts of life. The spiritualism too, in many cases, becomes a material (and commercial) product, something disposable. Our own soul is missing. No surprise if we are all unhappy, unsatisfied and more. Something in the modern concept of human being is wrong... lost.

Another year come and gone, happy to see another post from you......It sounds like you are saying we need to Stop and Smell the Roses, be happy with who we are and to Not Want more than we need, it's a good philosophy and the world would be a better place if more believed that way. Peace
Spectacular art work my friend and a very important message. Man or Woman can not exist alone. Companionship is a must for the human race to succeed. Getting in touch with our own souls is important for sure but we also need a circle of family and friends to surround us - to keep our minds healthy and hearts healthy. Thank you for your annual visit!!!
A truly pleasant surprise to see a new image in your gallery after this long time! There appears a vague allusion to the yin and yang in this image, how the two are interwoven in an endless spiral. As I see it, the dance of the soul is really the dance of Shiva, the endless creative interplay of cosmic forces that gives rise to the countless forms in nature. And in art. :)
great work and I agree in what you are saying. We need to reconnect to our inner being and try to better us self in according with the spirit rules of cosmos. We are all parts of that universal consciousness which is the sum of all life in all the universes. And I feel in my heart that someday all nations on earth will be in peace and reach out toward our galactic brothers and sisters:)
