Wrathful Hum - original

This is a free style calligraphy of the seed syllable hum in an Umed script style. 


The creative delivery of this piece is with a brisk loose brush style that is energetic and free. Such enthused mark making is deliberate in expressing a more dynamic feel to this character.


In this case the seed syllable of the Dharma protector Mahakala, who as a wisdom protector is no other than the wrathful aspect of compassion. As a deity practice, Mahakala is the pacifier and remover of ones more stubborn inner and outer obstacles on the Dharma path to enlightenment.
