Art: Centaur by Artist Aria Nadii

"Centaur" is from a series inspired by alchemical drawings and illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages. The centaur is a mythological figure composed of two very different natures. He represents the human struggle between passion and reason. Many traditional centaurs also have human arms and hold a bow and arrow which indicates more of a pure conflict between intelligence and instinct. In this illustration, the centaur is armless and holds no weapon. The mythical beast is depicted here in the center of a labyrinth overgrown with vines. The labyrinth symbolizes the path of initiation and the vines indicate the passage of time. He is a more primal and shamanic figure, illuminated with the golden aura of alchemical transformation. His calm presence in the center of the maze symbolizes acceptance and integration.
