George Harrison's original felt tip drawing that he created during the Beatles historic visit to the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Rishikesh, India, February 1968. George created a brightly colored sketch of two god-like eyes looking over a city in a valley. Talking to Hunter Davies while being interviewed  for the official Beatles biography John Lennon observed, "The basic talent is believing you can do something. Me and Paul were always drawing but George wouldn’t even try because he said he couldn’t draw. It took us a long time to persuade him anyone could draw. Now he’s drawing all the time. And he’s getting better." The Beatles had travelled to India to attend an advanced transcendental meditation programme at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi whom they had met in Bangor, Wales in August 1967. During their time at the ashram The Beatles filled their spare time by writing songs (many of which would appear on The White Album), drawing and other activities such as making bracelets. The drawing comes from the estate of Geoffrey Baker, a former assistant to the Maharishi. Measures 13 x 8.25. Very good condition. Pre-authenticated by Beatles handwriting expert Frank Caizzo. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll® Certificate of Authenticity.
