'For the last two years or so certain geometrical forms had been appearing and reappearing in my work. To me these forms seemed to have a symbolic significance. They appeared clothed in certain more specific symbols like that of the snake, the sperm, the lotus the sign OM, reminiscent of ancient totems which had, not a ritualistic but a magical significance for me.'
