The Heart Sutra in Similar Triangles

 This version executed in the spring of 2020


    This is a pencil drawing done around January of 2020. Inspired by the a story of the struggle of a young person who was born with both sets of genitalia and yet, was forced to grow up as a girl due to the person's mother cutting of the child's penis as a baby. When the person became around thirty years old they were confused due to being convinced that mom made a mistake and the person is really a man.
    When trying to understand this person from a distance one experiences this person as normal yet, the closer one gets to this person the more difficult it is to make out their identity. This is the same experience one gets from looking at the drawing show here. From a distance it looks fine -- even to the point that you can tell the person is wearing glasses. Yet, up close it is hard to tell it is a person at all.
The mathematical poetic form used is a "Similar Triangles Poem" and you can find tools to understand the mechanics of this form here:Similar Triangles Poems. In the vernacular, the poem can be read as "The Lost Soul is to a Cosmic Nursery as Being On An Ocean Raft is to Times Square. (NYC) or it can be read as The Lost Soul is to Being On An Ocean Raft as the Cosmic Nursery is to Times Square.
