Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is one of fifteen paintings in my Chakra Rainbow Oil Painting Series. Each painting depicts a state of balance or imbalance in the human energy field.
The martyr represents an imbalanced sacral chakra. It depicts a woman who has taken her own life. The painting represents the inability to do or give any more and a wounded individual. Suicide and martyrdom is one of the leading killers in our world today. I did not paint this to glorify it's darker concepts but to speak to the healthy necessity for ending some things, like unhealthy patterns or negativity, that once ended allows the individual to fully grow and blossom. It is a representation of cutting cords in honor of the self.
The guiding pricipals behind both the imbalance of the second chakra and The Martyr is the act of sacrifice and state of giving up. A martyr has bled herself.
