First Chakra Muladhara Root Left Detail
Sculpture - Carved Limestone On Black Granite
1st Chakra (Muladhara or Root) is related to instinct, security, survival and also to basic human potentiality. This center is located in the perineum, which is the region between the genital and the anus. Although no endocrine organ is placed here, it is said to relate to the gonads and the adrenal medulla, responsible for the fight-or-flight response when survival is under threat.There are said to be a series of seven chakras below muladhara going down the leg,[corresponding the base animal instincts.
Since the sculpture is an exact replica of my own feet in the prayer position, the meaning is somewhat more elevated than what the minor chakras would include:
Rasatala- located in the ankles, it is the centre of selfishness and pure animal nature.
Mahatala- located in the feet, this is the dark realm 'without conscience', and inner blindness.
Patala-Located in the soles of the feet, this is the realm of malice, murder, torture and hatred.
