The Holy Fire
Left panel from the triptych Holy Fire, by Alex Grey 1987
Oil on Linen, 90 X 216 in.
The soul-searching pilgrim arrives on the mountain top, and his kundalini energy, the serpent power, begins to ascend within him. The caduceus or healing staff is internalized. The eye of God in the form of an angelic presence channels heart-opening flames of divine grace into his center, sending his body/mind into a state of God intoxication and mystical shock.
