Kicking off your week with a vibrant dose of colour from our last gig because I'm having colour withdrawals from Rajasthan! ♥️🧡💛💚💜💙 Wherever we went, brightly hued clothes and patterns set each scene ablaze. Did you know that when light enters our eyes, the light energy of colour is carried to the centre of the brain? It affects the chakras and stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands, which causes the glands to secrete hormones and this in turn affects our physical activity, emotional and mental states. The richness of the colours you see in India is often due to natural dyes extracted from animals, flowers, barks, roots and minerals. Traditionally, shellac was used for red dyes (a resin secreted by the female lac bug on trees), turmeric was used for yellow dyes, the rind of pomegranates for green, the true indigo plant for indigo and iron shavings and vinegar for black. Different colours hold and reflect different qualities. So what does colour mean to you and how does it affect you? 🎨🤔
