Soular Mahalia touches on the connections between human expression and the cosmic phenomena that governs our creativity. In the center is a gold painted record with a picture of Mahalia Jackson on top. The gold record represents the soul center of the modern Black American musical solar system. In orbit are records painted in blue and magenta with artists such as Louis Armstrong and B.B King on top, representing some of the popular musical forms that developed out of black gospel music.
