The painting “Scorpio” features model Dax Savage holding Vrischika-asana (or the scorpion pose) over a vast, southern California landscape. The light bulb in the foreground reflects the intensity of his focus, and the singular essence of his ideas. Scorpio is the eighth sign of the Zodiac and is often associated with intensity and power. Individuals born under this sign are thought to have a complex, focused, and self-contained character but can also be prone to extremity and cruelty.
