The definition of a mandala, in case you’re not familiar, is:
1 : a Hindu or Buddhist graphic symbol of the universe; specifically : a circle enclosing a square with a deity on each side that is used chiefly as an aid to meditation
2 : a graphic and often symbolic pattern usually in the form of a circle divided into four separate sections or bearing a multiple projection of an image*
To me, they are not only that, but beautiful symbols of the universe.
So, of course…it was time to finally paint one. Here’s the process, with the last piece being the finished product. I like how she turned out…how about you?
I think I may have to go bigger next time.
