Mandalas

When I sit down to paint and develop a Mandala I relax and naturally get into a Dream like state, delighting in the process of watching the beautiful colours that almost dance around on the page and am always delighted with the finished image. It still amazes me that I am so privileged to be able to create, I feel the love when Im doing them and I think it shows! …  I always sit back and go WOW! Thank you!!! <3

Mandalas are a timeless masterpiece of human expressions, rich with traditions and symbolism. Each mandala is unique and conveys different meanings depending on who made it and what philosophies are believed by that individual. Found in many different cultures and religions, from Buddhism, Hindu, Celtic, Native Americans, and many more mandalas have become major symbols throughout history, the Ying Yang symbol for balnance of male and female energy, and even today,  The peace sign. 

Yet many people don’t realise the significance or cultural meaning of these powerful symbols.  

While the origin of the word mandala is still debated, most people believe it comes from a Sanskrit word meaning circle, or a container of essence. In Nature the mandala can be found in  “The Fibonacci Sequence" from the simple snail,  growth of trees, flowers, the Earth and the spiraling Universe.
