Kartika/Damaru

In order to better facilitate understanding of the various implements and meanings of the magical devices in most of my work I have been sketching them out with short descriptors.  Here is the first in a series. 

The Kartika is a weapon symbolic of severing all material and worldly bonds. It is a curved knife that is most often associated with the skinning of hides. The hooked blade for opening up the skin and the scraper for scraping the hide out.   It symbolized wisdom and the method as well as the severing of all conceptualizations.

It was drawn with my copic multiliners and colored with prismacolor.
