The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while art tells you to take your time. Listen to the art.” -Junot Diaz
With the passing of time, our lives have been bombarded with work and all the machine-made clamour that rings in our ears, making us less human dancing to the rhythm of the whirlwind that surrounds us. Every object has its own energy and has a strong influence.
We are what we are surrounded by, be it thoughts revolving in our heads, people in our lives or things that are present in the space that we inhabit. Whoever said, “Art makes a home more human,” was right on point. With works of art, you can feel at ease. They elevate our senses and exude positivity.
Who doesn’t want to have beautiful paintings in their home? Everyone wants to have unique paintings that not only add beauty to the home or office spaces but can also bring happiness and prosperity if chosen appropriately. Vastu Shastra lays emphasis on the importance of having paintings that will aid the transfer of energies that can change the entire course of our lives. The right paintings, according to Vastu experts, aid in the flow of positive energy in the home. Let’s look at some artwork from Mojarto that can help bring positivity to your lives.
Horse Painting for Vastu
Horses are considered auspicious according to Vastu Shastra. They represent stability, bravery, power, strength, and loyalty. The act of placing galloping horses painting in the South direction is thought to have a good impact on many parts of one’s life. Running horses represent both speed and expansion in life. Devidas Dharmadhikari paints horses as a metaphor for life in contrasting shades — black and white or brown and white against an abstract background to depict unrestrained and free-spirited creatures that emanate positivity.
Floral Painting for Vastu
Paintings of flowers are considered good luck paintings as per Vastu because they trigger positive feelings and attract life force. Even in Feng Shui, flowers are a sign of chi and can enhance the mood of any living space. Amita Soni Dand’s artwork, Turquoise Water Lilies has a serene effect on the onlooker.
Water lilies can be placed in any direction, preferably in the bedroom or in a space where mediation is practised. According to Vastu Shastra lilies symbolise happiness, harmony and peace and placing them in the bedroom could grant you sweet restful sleep. Keeping nightmares at bay, this painting will spark the aura of positive vibes. It is also an ideal gift to be presented at weddings as they also exemplify partnership and union.
