This illustration was inspired by the quote, "A LION DOESN'T CONCERN HIMSELF WITH THE OPINIONS OF A SHEEP" -Tywin Lannister (Game of Thrones). If you really think about this quote, it has a lot of layers. You are the author of your life, you are responsible for your actions, keep your eyes on the prize, don't let critics bring you down, etc., etc. It's such a powerful quote that I had to draw something to depict this message. I use this illustration as a reminder that as long as I focus on my goals, I will not allow critics to get in my way.
This is a symbol of the "Double Vajra" and in short it means "indestructible". It took me over a year of experimenting with different designs to finally find something that represents who I as a person and connects me to my roots. It was also important that it aesthetically ties in with my ornately decorative style.
Vajra is a Sanskrit word meaning both thunderbolt and diamond. Additionally, it is a weapon which is used as a ritual object to symbolize both the properties of a diamond (indestructibility) and a thunderbolt (irresistible force).
Thank you for viewing!
