Knight of Wands

The Knight of Wands signifies a quest for spiritual meaning. Wands represent the fiery element, both internally and externally. What is the life force or energy that inspires? Wands represent spirit. The Knight of Wands is searching for enlightenment, the action is within the soul.

 In India the Kumbh Mela, the largest religious gathering (two to eight million people) in the world is happening, an event that happens once every twelve years.  As I saw images of the holy men, the Sadhus I was inspired to paint this Knight of Wands, deep in meditation holding in his hand a trident, symbol of the God Shiva.
