Here, as is typical in his work, he has implemented ancient tantric iconographies and subsequently reinterpreted them by reducing them to abstractions, culminating in the construction of a fresh aesthetic language. This vertically symmetrical picture plane consists of an anthropomorphic figure leaning within a meditative stare. Santosh has decorated the body with yantras, or sacred geometrical symbols, that signify the regenerative aspects of consciousness. The head is composed of a circular naad bindu, representing the cosmos in its equivocal state, sharing an axis with geometric tantric shapes at the abdomen. The curved contours delineate a voluptuous feminine aspect, softening the angular lines. Shakti in Hinduism represents the female principle of divine energy and power that first creates and then preserves the universe.
