The sacred Sri Yantra that we see here is the most well known and fascinating of all such figures because of its intricate geometric harmony. The 'bindu' in the middle represent the goddess. The triangles arranged in series are enclosed by two concentric lotus circles of eight and sixteen petals further inscribed within a square Bhupura or ground plan. It is said that when Sri Yantra is consecrated by auspicious rites, it brings prosperity and peace and removes all kinds of malevolent influences. This yantra is commonly found on temple walls and ceilings due to its auspicious bearings.
The artist has used pure colours to go with the auspiciousness of the diagram, as much as the simplicity of the Madhubani folk is reflected in the simplicity of the form.
