Avatara

1996, Acrylic on board
130 X 130 cm
(51" X 51")
Sold (prints available)

A huge white horse, approximately 10 meters tall, tears people apart in a desolated landscape.
In the foreground is some vegetation, mostly wormwood.

Ever since I was a little kid I've noticed that I in some way was followed by a white horse from time to time, like a supervisor or a guardian angel. If I turned around quickly I could get a quick glance of it before this metaphysical animal disappeared. The horse sometimes appears in my dreams as a bearer of great powers. When I grew older and begun to read ancient myths and legends I found the symbol of the white horse almost everywhere, especially in prophecies like the Book of revelation and the Agni purana. In prophecies from India the white horse Kalki was often mentioned. This being is supposed to be the last of the Avataras. The word "avatara" or "avatar" is Sanskrit for descended and allude to divine incarnations. The Kalki avataras mission here was to once and for all clean the earth from evilness.
The book Srimad bhagavatam mentions the prophecy like this:

By that time, between two ages, will the master of creation be born as the incarnation Kalki and become Visnu Yasas son. At this time the rulers of the earth will have become plunderers.

This prophecy exists in many versions and this is just one of them.
In the Book of revelation there is an abundance of references to white horses. If my white horse has anything to do with the predicted horses I cant tell, what I can tell is that it has left traces in some of my paintings, including this one.
