AIZEN Myō-ō 愛染明王 👹
HI EVERYONE! it's me again, that one guy who makes fractals to say things but visually
History and Etymology
The origins of his name dates back to the Tang dynasty in the VI century, the meaning also known as the etymology of his name was a translation to the Sanskrit words Àirǎn Míngwáng which means King of Wisdom Dyed in Lust meanwhile in Japan the name was wrote the same but with the kanjis, the difference was the pronunciation, this change to Aizen Myō-ō however the meaning still the same.
Cult and Mantra
His Mantra translate to japanese is written all across this pieces in orden to see on full mosaic when it's all putted together.
「おん まかあらぎゃ ばさら うしゅにしゃ ばさらさたば じゃうんばんこ」
(on makaaragya basara ushunisha basarasataba jaunbanko).
Inpiration and references
On the other hand my roots on Venezuela and the political situation makes me feel very conflicted with the color red, so this is one of the chances I have to get rid of the Tabú we have with this color, the reminiscent of this color needs to be remembered with other meanings on semiotics we're speaking about love, passion, blood, anger and live, it's well known the color red represents all this things a much more, we gave the interpretation we like, or in better words the interpretation we feel when we see it.
The transculturization it's a phenomenon where two or more different cultures mix eachother product of migrations, wars, conquest, media, or just traveling and pairing, we grown with a familiar culture and when we found a partner we share our culture, for my eyes it's a very beautiful thing, this fractal sculpture series it's very dedicated to that, we seen it in our countries, we seen it in religion and cults, but at the end the culture we feel the culture we know, the culture we have a share, we're not just in a country or in a stated, we are in a very land of our own called earth.
