Illustration Friday theme: Layers


This is my posting for the Illustration Friday Layers theme. This painting portrays Sufism; a mystical sect of Islam otherwise known as the Whirling Dervishes. They are influenced by other religions as well, including Buddhism.

Their ceremonial dance (and trance) is meant to represent a mystical journey through the layers of the mind and love, to the "Perfect". I have also designed the painting as a physically layered image.
