The 49th Day by koalacid The 49th Day by koalacid
In Tibetan Buddhism the 49th day marks the point at which the soul is reincarnated. It is also speculated by some psychedelic researchers that the pineal gland , a small organ within the brain that may regulate naturally occurring levels of the hallucinogen DMT, also becomes active 49 days after conception.

Hey! To add to your 49 day art: it takes 49 days to pass from this life to the next according to the Tibetan Book of the Dead and it takes 49 days for a fetus to grow sex organs and a pineal gland. It also took 49 days for Gautama Siddhartha to attain Nirvana while meditating under the Bodhi tree. There are 49 steps to the top of the Mayan temples.

Truly love your art. It is so inspiring and I finally found your deviantart page today. I've seen some of your photos floating around the net and never saw a link back to your page. Please continue making art. It truly is a blessing for all of us.

dude totally sick man, really great stuff. This reminds of of the DMT documentary that came out recently, The Spirit Molecule (trailer: [link]), as well as the movie Enter the Void which deals with the Tibetan conception of life after death (trailer: [link]).

Again, awesome man!

The symmetry in this is very beautiful. I'm interested in the technique. Did you draw each part separately then layer digitally?
The complexity of the piece is fascinating.

This is incredible organic pattern work. The piece really reminds me of what I love to do, and it shows how good you are at it. I think the line work is great, and the gradients in certain areas are great. I believe that if you can utilize those amazingly smooth gradients as such a more balanced distribution with the solid lines, it can really push the piece to over the top.

I'm always artistically lifted by your works, as if they are so breathtaking that by simply looking at them one can be mezmerized for a period of time.

Really impressed with the center figure and the emphasis on lore that goes along with it

Nicely Done Mate... as always.

Indeed - and another great reference to the Pineal Gland - Hunter S. Thompson´s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.... Pure DMT... why not?

Fairly Deep one this time - but equally as enjoyable as the rest that have gone before.

Happy New Year!

A very interesting number mathematically as well as mythically!

More info here [link]

7 x 7 = 49. 49 x 49 = 2401. 2+4+0+1 = 7

and the rest!

I like your seething worlds :)
