Nicholas Roerich - 1929

Agni Yoga (1920), a spiritual teaching, is the perfect amalgamation of the traditional knowledge of the East and the enlightenment of modern science in the West. The painting of Agni Yoga, created by Nicholas Roerichs in the year 1929, accurately represents what the teaching means to the artist. This symbolic painting shows the mountains and the search for Shambhala. The sky above them is iridescent,with different shades of blue and yellows. On a lonely rock, raised above the world, is a woman, who was modelled by Helen Roerichs, Nicholas Roerichs’ wife. She is wearing an oriental piece of clothing, falling down to her toes, her hair is tucked away in a high hairstyle, evoking memories of a distant country. The position of the woman is symbolic of truth and search for knowledge.
