My design-partner, Agus, created this design, which is part pf the series he conceptualized as the Chakras, familiar to American audiences as an Indian concept that describes energy centers in the body that can be activated through meditation and yoga to stimulate healing and maintain a sense of physical and spiritual or psychological well-being. This design was intended to represent the Mandala Chakra (Sahasrara), which is located at the crown and is associated with higher consciousness, enlightenment, unity, contentment, spiritual connection, and intelligence.
Yet not everyone feels connected to the idea of Chakras. So we have also engaged the form of the Fleur de Lis, the classic, familiar, and elegant motif depicting three petals bound together.
