Chakra Details.jpg

THE SEVEN CHAKRAS

Featured are the seven chakra points that help the Avatar enter and control the Avatar State: 土 (Earth), 水 (Water), 火 (Fire), 風 (Air), 音 (Sound), 光 (Light), and 思 (Thought). Aang holds the Sound Chakra, which symbolizes overcoming his denial and accepting his destiny as the Avatar. Korra holds the Light Chakra, which symbolizes her achievement in breaking the illusion of separation and unifying the Spirit World with the Human World.

ENERGYBENDING

Featured are the unique hand poses representing the power of energybending. This ability was passed down from the ancient lion turtles and used by select Avatars to restore or remove another person’s bending. Aang represents the ability to remove, seen during his battle with Phoenix King Ozai. Both Korra and the fire lion turtle represent the ability to restore, seen with the return of Lin Beifong’s earthbending, and Wan’s ability to bend the element of fire in the spirit wilds.
