Guru Laghima. by TommyTejeda Guru Laghima. by TommyTejeda

Guru Laghima was an Air Nomad and renowned poet who lived at the Northern Air Temple around 3,829 BG. It's from the Legend of Korra television series. In Book 3 (season three) a new villain named Zaheer talks about Guru Laghima and his poetry. One of his poems/quotes goes: 

Let go of your earthly tether, 

Enter the void, 

Empty and become wind. 

It is said he discovered the secret to weightlessness, which allowed him to unlock the air bending ability of flight. This essentially allowed Laghima to become untethered from the earth and lived the last forty years of his life without touching the ground.

During his lifetime, Guru Laghima became a renowned poet with writing so influential that it

survived the Hundred Year War. In his honor, a mountaintop near the Northern Air Temple known as Laghima's Peak was named after the Guru. In addition, several caves located two miles from the Northern Air Temple are adorned with statues of Laghima, along with other influential monks. Over time, however, the truth about his achievements was lost and his abilities were dismissed as children's stories and legends. I've based the BG on a background thumbnail from the Legend of Korra Book Two (season two) painted by Josh Middleton.

I went over it and changed it composition wise to match Laghima.

I've never seen this character in the show, that's why I thought it would be cool to make my own design and have fun with it. 

Hope Avatar Korra fans like it.

Peace out.
