Artist's Description

Sufi schools teach about subtle centres (lata’if, “subtleties”) present in the human body. There is no final consensus on their numbers and locations, but I’m most drawn to the following system.
Overall, the lata’if number ten. Five are outer and belong to the world of Creation: these are the arkân (four elements) and our lower nature (nafs). Five belong to our spiritual body and are located within the heart, inside one another, so that one goes deeper and deeper inward as one journeys towards truth. The latter five are the subject of this piece.
