Creative Mandalas

man•da•la n : Any of various ritualistic geometric designs symbolic of the universe, used in Hinduism and Buddhism as an aid to meditation. —

According to Creativity-Portal, "The mandala may traditionally be used as a spiritual tool for meditation, but it can also be treated as a contemplative work of art. Artists of all kinds are intrigued by the endless creative possibilities that exist in these sacred circles, the intricate design work that is often based on the step-and-repeat principle, center, and symmetry." 2009
Mine seem more like Kaleidoscopesbut the spiritual aspect of the Mandala!
I have enjoyed making these over the years for different gifts, contests, swaps and design elements. Hope you enjoy my work!
