Yin Yang Bear by Paul Heussenstamm (American, b. 1949)
Paul Heussenstamm (American, b. 1949) is a practitioner of the Eastern tradition of transmission, in which a painting travels through the artist. He consults with Tibetan painter Yeshi Dorjee and artists in Bali, Nepal, India, and Tibet to ensure the authenticity of his work. Yin Yang Bear represents energies of the goddess and the union of masculine and feminine. Heussenstamm believes that soul patterns are manifested in mandalas, which have played a role in Eastern spiritual development for centuries.
