The drawings presented here were made with Indian bindis, from the Sanskrit bindu, meaning "a drop, small particle, or dot." Indian women paste these on their foreheads between the eye-brows as a form of decoration; this location also represents the sixth chakra, ajna (seat of con-cealed wisdom) and "the third eye". From Vedic times, the bindi was created as a means to wor-ship one's intellect; in meditation it is a focus to strengthen concen-tration.
