This poster was created to celebrate the spirit of Jimi Hendrix and the unifying music that he gave the world before he left his body prior to the album’s release in 1971. As an iconic symbol of peace and love during the ongoing war in Vietnam, Hendrix is shown from behind emanating a ‘Cry of Love’ to his audience as he bids us all farewell. The symbols running up the spine represent the chakra centers of the human body, with the spiritual eye open and awakened. The heart and spiritual eye chakras are focal points in mediation, used to transcend the body while sending and receiving divine Love. These Eastern symbols are also a nod to the 70’s spiritual revolution and Jimi’s usage of Hindu iconography in his album art for Bold as Love. The bow and arrow icons on his jacket reflect his Native American Cherokee ancestry and the original (unused) album artwork that Hendrix commissioned for the record before his passing. It’s an honor to have been selected to create this officially licensed, screen-printed poster for the fans and the pop culture archives as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the one and only Jimi Hendrix solo record. ~ Palehorse
