The artwork for this print from the Gnawa Collection depicts the nirvana-like state participants reach during a "Lila", in which they often break into swooping dance moves. Inspired by the healing ceremony of rebirth and rejuvenation, I tried to channel aspects of the Gnawa culture fusing the movement of dances, rhythm of the repetitive sound as it is transported through the instruments, and the fashion worn by musicians with embroidered flowers and belts and hats adorned with cowrie shells. The colors are soothing, healing, and comforting.
