Postcard - ‘Process of Spiritual Birth No.4'.
Fourth in a series of engravings showing the process of spiritual rebirth. Though the process has been completed, in the lower body there is still a dark region, suggesting that humans, even in their enlightened state, should be aware of their dark origins and keep on striving for union with the Divine.
