The idea of my painting arose from the travels I made through India and Nepal. I was very closely involved with the people and beliefs, and was very impressed by the rituals in which small offerings such as flowers, incense or food are offered to a symbolized cult image, such as the Himalayas, Ganges, images of gods, temples, etc. This is done daily, with great dedication. You feel the powerful energy that is released and flows through you. Very special to experience. In this way, rituals inspire us to live more consciously, to become better people and to make a valuable contribution to the world around us. A number of these elements are combined in this painting.
