symbolic picture depicting enlightenment and self awarness.

 

The enlightenment and the self awarness are depicted in all religions. Here we have a surreal sky with colors and lights and a bridge covered with snow where a man is walking to a windows with inside a corridor with symbols  and letters of Bhutanese alphabet, The corridor represents the after death experience of the human soul, and is connected with a change, the snow is always connected with meditation, the bridge in the sky is the crossing to a new step. All the symbols are togheter for a dream image with strong symbolic value.

A dream image representing the albedo, step of alchemy.  Albedo is one of the four major stages of the magnum opus; along with nigredo, citrinitas and rubedo.  Following the chaos of the nigredo stage, the alchemist undertakes a purification in albedo, which is literally referred to as ablutio – the washing away of impurities.

Surrealism pictures are a branch or better the ancestor of photography based digital art. It is an “old” tachnique, started with the darkroom and used by surrealists as Salvador Dalì in some works of photography. The technique is known as photomontage and consistes in mounting more images into one.
