Mandala (Sanskrit Maṇḍala, 'circle') is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions, representing the universe. The basic form of most mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Each gate is in the general shape of a T. Mandalas often exhibit radial balance.
Matt W. Moore is a genius in so many ways of the arts. I love his Mandala series he created while at the SUMMIT in Utah in 2014.
"This series was created entirely with
elements foraged on the mountain and in the valley : River pebbles and
stones, shale, red rocks from the high elevations, dead branches from
aspen trees, bark from evergreens, cattails from the lake’s edge, dried
wild grasses from yesteryear, and cut dead branches exposing the rings
of the tree’s life."
Kathy Klein is a devout lover of plants, animals, people and the divine
presence within all. She creates the danmalas by first centering
herself in a meditative devotional space.
