The Mayatri plant is revered on planet Dooda. It is one of many entheogenic plants, all of which have their unique qualities. When you ground up the seeds, found in the juicy flesh of its highly nutritious fruit, and mix it with the juice of another psychedelic plant, the Pingtau, you get to walk through dimensional portals. Painted on the walls of most Doodaan villages, are portals that allow you to explore other planets and dimensions. The Doodaan are very found of exploring the universe through these portals.
The image here is my interpretation of the images shown to me by a Doodaan friend of mine called Vinak. He was one of the Doodaan that I ended up squatty a warehouse in east London with. I took this from one of his sketchbooks and recreated it in a style that I had dabbled with for quite a bit. It is the style of the Maya and Aztec peoples that can be found in the book, ‘Painted Books from Mexico’, published by the British Museum.
