Koham? is a primal question phrase in Sansakrit that simply means “Who am I ?”. At a deeper level it describes the concept of soul searching. Realizing that the physical self is made up of the five elements earth, fire, air, space and water makes one feel connected with the likes and in harmony with the universe. The elements themselves are described as Mahabhootas conveying their power to create and destroy a life form if it breaks the barriers in between. This artwork combines Warli art with Zentangle to depict this delicate balance that exists in the universe.
