Meher Baba Art by Teri Adams
In 1969 Teri Adams (then Terry Scott) traveled to India for the last Great Darshan of Avatar Meher Baba, and her life changed forever. On a subsequent trip in 1971, Teri presented a pastel illustration to Mehera for her birthday. Mehera was Baba's closest female disciple and cherished the drawing, placing it on a small table in Meher Baba's room at Meherazad, where is sits today.
Mehera said of Teri's work, "You know how to get Baba's eyes right." High praise for one who spent a lifetime staring into them.
Over the years, Teri created drawings, paintings, sumi, and other medium representations of Meher Baba as she sees him in her inner vision. Most of these were given as gifts to Mandali and family members and have never been collected together in one show.
In 2011, inspired by reading translations of the Ramayana, and scholarly works on Zoroaster, Teri began work on a new series dubbed "The Avatar Series"--depicting avatars of ages past through the lens of her love and understanding of the Avatar of this age, Meher Baba.
