The pencil rocket blasts off into the limitless sky of creative potential. As an unborn baby chick pierces the limitations of its egg and cracks the shell in order to experience life beyond its limited confines. The tip of the pencil rocket pierces beyond the outer most edge of the Earth's atmosphere poking its head into outer space. This represents breaking previously perceived unattainable limits and experiencing a taste of the liberating infinite vast creative potential of the Universe. The spider beneath the pencil rocket symbolizes the Creative Power out of which all of life is created. Spiders have an enormous amount of creative energy. They are extremely artistic and creative. This is demonstrated in the way they spin their webs. And this web symbolizes the web of life and how all of Life is intricately connected with each other. The symbol of the sacral chakra has been placed on the spider. It's the second chakra of the seven chakra system. The sacral chakra is also known as the Swadhisthana chakra, which is Sanskrit for "vital force." The sacral chakra is associated with the emotional body, sexuality and creativity. Sexual energy is creative energy. When channeled downward and outward it's used to reproduce human life. But when it's channeled upward through the chakras, this sexual energy can be transmuted and channeled into other creative endeavors such as art. The sacral chakra is associated with the color orange. It's also the color of the pencil rocket. The color orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. Orange is the color of creativity, passion, sexuality, confidence, joy, enthusiasm, intuition, and promotes a general sense of wellness. The sun beneath the pencil rocket represents raw power. It's this enormous fireball of energy. The sun represents light and Life. Without sunlight life on Earth wouldn't exist. Yellow is the color of sunshine, hope, happiness, optimism, positivity, energy, clarity, and enlightenment. Consciousness is often represented by light. The light of consciousness is the root foundation of reality, for without consciousness nothing can be experienced. The grass, plants, flowers, mushrooms, insects, and animals represent the diversity of life in it's many varieties of forms that are birthed and come forth from this creative energy. Although people are not seen in this artwork, but there's a kite. And it's assumed that if there's a kite with a string it's being flown by a human even though they aren't in the picture. The kite along with the dirigible, jet plane, satellite, and pencil rocket are man made objects which all allude to humans as being part of the web of life and the fabric of creation even though they are not directly seen. The number 2 on the pencil rocket is in reference to the No. 2 pencil which seems to be the world's most well known pencil. The lead in the No. 2 pencil is not too dark and not too light, and it's not too hard or too soft. It's generally considered to be in the middle of the HB (hardness/blackness) pencil scale. Because of this in between or middle ground, the No. 2 pencil is akin to what the number 2 means spiritually which is harmony and balance. In the diversity of life there's a harmony and balance in the web of creation which allows for all forms of life to co-exist at once and to be interconnected with each other.
