This painting represents the interaction of a personís mind with the external universe. The dark blue cloth symbolizes our conscious mind. The area underlying it symbolizes the subconscious, which is the repository of knowledge represented by the book.
The sun in the sky symbolizes the universal source of all. Energy from the source is gradually stepped down (waterfall cascade) to a level where we can perceive it with our human senses in our everyday lives. The world as we perceive it in everyday life is depicted by the white area just beyond the blue cloth, in the center of the painting. From our interaction with everyday life comes the pearls of wisdom, which are received by the conscious mind and gradually sink down into the subconscious. The thoughts of our conscious mind are represented as little people.
The boat symbolizes that which transports us from the space of everyday life to the world of the spirit. In our everyday life, the boat is in dry dock, but prepared and ready to go. Within our subconscious (bottom of painting) are contained the memories of our prior journeys to the realms of the spirit.
Time is perceived on the level of the conscious mind (blue cloth). The tuning fork signifies that time also is vibration in nature.
