David Shapiro conceives all of his paintings and prints as series. The Savasan series refers to the horizontal yoga position that describes the seven body centers or chakras. Each of the works in the series features a horizontal field divided into six parts, with the seventh chakra represented by the entirety of the piece. The composition reflects the progression of emphasis from one body center to the next in yogic meditation practice.
