"Aasim" is a piece dedicated to the Black Panther, and it's symbolism of the human body and African American Culture. Its cool symmetrical composition is composed of geometrical shapes and magical beings. Aasim means "protector or guardian". Marvel Comics Black Panther protected the people of Wakanda from outside forces to prevent any potential threat or danger. The Black Panther symbolic meaning of protection correlates and carries with the spirit animal and the human body as well. We must protect our temple from negative energy forces that could corrupt a temple that needs healing.
