About Meditations on Savitri — V

This is the fifth and final book in the Meditations on Savitri series, containing facsimiles of sketches made by the Mother to guide Huta in preparing the paintings, is a companion volume to the previous four. From 1961 to 1966 the Mother and Huta meditated together on lines chosen from Sri Aurobindo's Savitri, and when an image appeared to the Mother she described it to Huta with the help of a brief sketch. The sketches were made on different types and sizes of paper, using pencils, sometimes coloured, or different types of pens. On many of the sketches she also indicated what colours to use and the proportions and placement of an image.  Huta then completed the work in her studio as an oil painting. The sketches are reproduced in their actual sizes and are accompanied on the opposite page by the corresponding lines from Savitri.
