  • These pictures in your home create a negative atmosphere of fear and sadness
  • Do not display abstract paintings in your home. These are good to look at and admire in a museum. However, they create confusion, anxiety, and stress when displayed at home
  • As per art and Vastu – Never hang pictures of just a fire, like a burning house, a forest fire, or just a flame, etc in your home
