    I thoroughly enjoy Alex Grey's work and would have given this 5 stars if not for one image in particular in which he seems to be hierarchically categorizing sexual acts, placing heteronormative acts near "godliness" and homosexual acts near "evil." This was deeply disturbing.

    It turns out that the liminal space between spirituality and kitsch is guarded by that evil skinless man from the first Hellraiser movie. Beware!

    The University of Colorado hosted this exhibit in the late 1980s- I was so mesmerized. This art is unbelievable. absolutely transcendental. I got the book right away, and while not as mind-blowing as the art in person (of course), it still captures it well.

    Amazing! I have this book more than a two years, but for the first time I decided to read introduction and Alex's notes. And his marvelious pictures and art became more interesting and mysterious. Everyone knows Alex's art, but there's something important in description. Anyway, when you're reading a book - it's one experience, but when you're in museum at exhibition - it's absolutely other feelings.

    Not as big or as broad as Transfigurations; Sacred Mirrors could be described as his exploration and reinterpretation of the human body. It's some pretty wild visual art, and worth checking out. Alex Grey has done a lot of artwork for the band Tool, which is where I found out about him. If you're into their artwork, check him out.

    Alex Grey (no relation) is absolutely my favorite modern artist. I, too, enjoyed Transfigurations slightly more, but only slightly. Sacred Mirrors is the perfect name though. His paintings are Eucharistic for me, and prismatic reflections of all of us. Truly spectacular.

    This is a fantastic look at Grey's work. Excellent background and explanations of the imagery. Previously, I had been unaware of his performance art, which brings his painting into sharper perspective.

Seriously, this is one book to have. And to have it at the reach of your hand as often as possible. The possibilities for exploration and contemplation of what is in these pages are as vast as your willingness to dive into them. Simple y llanamente, esta es una increíble colección de pinturas de uno de los más grandes artistas contemporáneos que todavía esté vivo y trabajando. Con introducciones de Ken Wilber, Carlo McCormick y el propio Grey, en las que se asienta el marco en el que contextualizar el resto del libro, las pinturas aquí recogidas muestran todas las dimensiones humanas (principalmente, la física, la psicológica y la espiritual), habitualmente visibles en una sola mirada, pero revelando una cantidad asombrosa the detalles al ojo curioso. En serio, este es un libro para tener. Y para tenerlo a mano con la mayor frecuencia posible. Las posibilidades de exploración y contemplación de lo que hay en estas páginas son tan vastas como tu voluntad para sumergirte en ellas.

    This book is amazing, Alex Grey is amazing. I love the full page images of his paintings, they are so very detailed, especially the anatomical ones. Each of these works of art are inspired by some insight around spiritual enlightenment as you might say. There is also a lot of theory around the Sacred Mirrors visionary art, such as critically looking at art through perennial philosophy. Fascinating!

    I remember first seeing this book at a pizza shop in Lake Mary that all my friends worked at. My friend Dean was emphatically explaining to me and my buddy Mat that, "This is how it all is, man!!" Alex Grey will one day be looked at in the same light as Picasso and Michelangelo if you ask me. Visiting the actual paintings in NY in this book was easily one of the most spiritual experiences of my life and I actually felt for the first time what they are actually ( I think) meant to do.

    Es un libro que se tiene que leer con una mente abierta. Alex Grey es capaz de congeniar el arte, la ciencia y la religión en una sola imagen, leer este tipo de libros abren el panorama sobre lo que no vemos pero sentimos, y aunque no soy fiel creyente de todo lo que leí, pude aprender varias cosas históricas sobre el arte psicodélico. Lo recomiendo! A demás de que este libro tiene unas excelentes láminas, y podría decir que mi pintura favorita es Gaia!

    The book starts by attempting to make you affirm that Alex Gray is some kind of shaman. This is a bit odd, but in any case the art inside is amazing and well worth exploring.

    Gives a great deal of insight into the underpinnings of Alex Grey's art in general. Also gives some depth to the thought that was put into the presentation and understanding of the sacred mirrors.
