This diptych, inspired by Arpana Caur's 20th-century work "Ascension," is a profound exploration of meditation's transformative journey. Caur's influence is subtly woven into the fabric of this piece, guiding its thematic and stylistic choices.

The left panel vividly portrays the weight of life's hardships, self-perceptions, societal pressures, and outdated teachings. Dominated by shades of black and blue, with a striking sliver of red, it symbolizes the depth of sorrow and the pain of being bound by these burdens. The progression from lighter to darker blue represents an increasing heaviness, a metaphorical anchoring of the figure in struggle and darkness, signifying a lack of self-awareness and clarity.

Contrastingly, the right panel, illuminated in the spirit of "Ascension," reflects the liberation and enlightenment found in meditation. The figure, rendered in gentle strokes and fading hues of blue, symbolizes the release from sorrow. The background's warm palette of orange, yellow, and white embodies energy, spirituality, purity, and warmth. The white halos, indicative of aligned chakras, suggest a state of spiritual and emotional balance.

This panel depicts an ascent to a Buddha-like state of being, aligned with one's true, aware, and knowledgeable self. The inclusion of feminine elements, such as the depiction of breasts, is a deliberate nod to the belief in the feminine as a creator. It signifies the empowerment that comes with embracing one's ability to create and transform, drawing parallels to the journey of meditation itself.

Inspired by Caur's "Ascension," this diptych is not just an artistic creation but a narrative of personal metamorphosis, echoing the journey from encumbrance to a state of enlightened empowerment and self-realization.
