Seed of Life 2012 Artist: Richard Miller Website: www.rmiller-art.com Email: Mixed-media 20x16 Framed Original $1600.00 Stretched canvas print, retouched by artist to represent original finishes. $400.00 This is my first conscious Sacred Geometry painting. I have painted earlier works that were geometrical but not consciously trying to unlock the secrets of the universe as I am now. The "Seed of Life" could really be called the "Thought of the Seed of Life". Similar to the design of an atom mixing in the cosmic soup till enough attention is paid to it to make it grow to a flower and then a tree. The six concentric circles along with continued flower design will continue infinitely, representing, the perfection, in the design of everything. Sacred geometry can be described as a belief system attributing a religious or cultural value to many of the fundamental forms of space and time. According to this belief system, the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred, since contemplating one is contemplating the origin of all things. By studying the nature of these forms and their relationship to each other, one may seek to gain insight into the scientific, philosophical, psychological, aesthetic and mystical laws of the universe. The earliest example of this date back, perhaps, 12,000 years.
