This work has a similar format as that of the layers of germination of a seed into a plant. Here, the bottom most tile is a dense black square and according to Raza forms emerge from darkness and a black space is charged with latent forces aspiring to creation. The central tile has a black bindu symbolic of the energizing life- giving source, complemented by its counterpart that is the blue and green horizontal lines symbolic of water, which according to Raza, is a feminine entity, as water is a medium/element where live can grow and sustain. Thus representing the life bearing element. These elements collectively point towards potential birth/ ankuran of a seed. This is again similar to how a tree grows, with its roots being underneath the actual plant. The top most tile, incorporates inverted triangular structures and a green bindu, symbolic of the budding of a plant from its roots.
