Digital Gods

Ever since I remeber I have had a proclivity for myths and legends – gods, heroes and adventures have fascinated me and were a great inspiration for all my work – physical and digital.

Digital Gods is a personal project of mine, which I created for the pure fun of it and just as an experiment in order I can feel the power of the myth and combine it with the love I have for digital illustration.

In this project I managed to merge the old avatars of different cultures’ beliefs with the modern environment of the digital and all that combined with a big portion of my own abstract style.

1. ganesha

Lord Ganesha is the Hindu god of wisdom, knowledge and prosperity. He has human body with 4 hands and the head of an elephant.

Although Ganesha has many attributes, he is mostly recognized for his elephant head. He is widely revered, more specifically, as the remover of obstacles and thought to bring good luck.

He is the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honoured at the start of rites and ceremonies. Ganesha is also invoked as a patron of letters and learning. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes, associated with his birth and exploits.

2. Buddha

Even he’s not exactly considered a god, Buddha is a key figure in the mythological and religous realm in many countries and societies around the world.

Buddha, also known with his earthly name Siddhartha Gautama was the first man who reached enlightment. After he saw the dimesions of human suffering, he began meditating, eventually reaching for merging with the Absolute.

Ever since then the image of Buddha is associated with peace, tranquility and enlightment. His presence brings focus and brings even the most restless minds to peace.

3. Asclepius

Asclepius is a hero figure and god of medicine in Ancient Greece mythology. He is the son of Apollo – god of prophecy, music, and poetry, and Coronis – a Thessalian princess. Asclepius represents the healing aspect and medical arts.

He represents good health or fast recovery, in case someone is ill. His presence grants good physical and mental condition as well as a general feeling of protection. 

4. Thoth

Thoth was the god of the moon, sacred texts, mathematics, the sciences, magic, messenger and recorder of the deities, master of knowledge, and patron of scribes. His Egyptian name was Djehuty, which means “He who is like the Ibis.” He was depicted with the head of an ibis bird.

Thoth played many vital and prominent roles in Egyptian mythology, such as maintaining the universe, and being one of the two deities who stood on either side of Ra’s solar barque. In the later history of ancient Egypt, Thoth became heavily associated with the arbitration of godly disputes, the arts of magic, the system of writing, and the judgment of the dead.

5. IxChel

xchel or Ix Chel is the 16th-century name of the aged jaguar Goddess of midwifery and medicine in ancient Maya culture. In a similar parallel, she corresponds, to Toci Yoalticitl „Our Grandmother the Nocturnal Physician“, an Aztec earth Goddess inhabiting the sweatbath.
