The Third Eye of Emma KunzIllustration // Tuesday, 14 Jan 2014
Emma Kunz was a healer and visual artist who has only broken into the art world posthumously. Her images are reminiscent of Buddhist maps of the universe--mandalas--and many have noted that to see them correctly you must appraise them with "your third eye." Originally they were created to be placed on the floor next to the clients the artist was seeing; they functioned as therapeutic tools rather than pieces of art. Kunz was said to have been telepathic and even divine, and discovered a "healing stone" that is used today in herbal medicine.
