Lethargy by lhpandy Lethargy by lhpandy
Oil on canvass. This came out when I had some serious depression and artists block, that feeling that you really have the need to create but you subconsiously sabotage your own efforts. I was lost in a maze of my own making...Lots of symbolism and meaning in there, buts thats for my lovely audience to enjoy!!

I'd love to see a conspiracy theorist see this. They'd go nuts.

Anyways, this is really beautiful. I love it.

Just because it`s a pyramid with an eye doesn`t mean it`s "illuminati". This painting may have a psychedelic meaning, the third eye, look it up.

I know. But I've seen so many hardcore C. theorists go batty over something like this. I personally find it close to what you described, but a lot of theorists wouldn't see it the same way. Especially if this guy was an extremely renown painter in the world.

Thanks for liking my art!!! Yup the eye in the upward pointing triangle with an eye is the all seeing eye and has been referenced for millenia by many differing religions, groups, and organisations, and is generally seen to be a masculine symbol. This is a downward pointing triangle in reference to the centre of the Kali Yantra, which is a symbol of the womb, a reference to female divinity and creation, the eye is the higher perception of the pineal region. 
 I hope this helps :)

I am in awe of this beautiful painting. The detail is incredible and emotion that comes out of this indescribable. There are so many thoughts that come to my mind when I see this that I really just can't put in words. It might be disturbing to some but I still find is amazing. It definitely deserves to be a DD!

Is this of the devil? It does not seem to be of Jesus Christ of the LAtter Day Saints in Heaven or in my Bible. Amen. God Bless.

Ah this is a wonderful piece of art! And I can totally relate to the feeling of feeling the urge to create but at the same time you just hit the wall with everything, and it is a very slow and annoying process to overcome. I spent my days daydreaming too much.
