The PSYCHE series is a conceptual series that combines ideas and themes from the Eastern belief of Chakras - energy centres in the body, as well as psychologist Carl Jung's theory of archetypes and individuation. 

In this series, each Chakra corresponds with one of Jung's archetypes, using the symbolism, colours, and associated body parts and themes.
