The Angels of Creation

The Pre-Raphaelite painter Burne-Jones depicted the angels of the seven days of The Creation.
This became the basis of a stained glass design by his lifelong friend William Morris.
The Biblical idea of a sevenfold creation reflects the seven chakras of the subtle system, each with its presiding deity or archangel, governing a different aspect of our being.

Burne-Jones liked to show the Kundalini energy emerging from the Sahasrara Chakra at the crown of the head.
