“Unveiling the Wisdom of Shivathmika” 24x18in. Oil on Linen.
A few years ago, I found myself seeking relief for my chronic gut issues at an Ayurvedic clinic in India, under the care of Dr. Sundara. During my time there, I had the privilege of encountering, a remarkable young girl named Shivathmika, Dr. Sundara’s younger daughter. She was merely four years old at the time.
One day, while exploring the surroundings, we noticed Shivathmika had vanished. Concerned we embarked on a search and discovered her in a state of deep meditation amidst the tranquil tea leaf bushes. It was astonishing to witness the profound wisdom emanating from such a tender soul.
Fast forward to the present, Shivasthmika has blossomed into an eight year old, and her wisdom continues to surpass her years.This is a painting of a truly extra ordinary young girl.
