A personally meaningful piece of art, created just for you.
Mandalas are traditionally used as a tool for focusing the mind.
Mandalas are used in many spiritual traditions as an aid to meditation, both in the process of creation and as a visual focus for the mind. It is my hope that your Personal Compass Mandala will bring you peace, focus and a harmonious point of connection with the natural world.
What you get:
~ a hand-crafted Mandala on heavyweight watercolor paper, created using assorted materials and techniques including watercolor, gouache, acrylic, metallic inks and watercolor pencil.
~ a printed legend describing the attributes and symbolic meanings of the animals and other natural elements you have chosen
~ a photo preview of your Mandala before it is shipped
How it works:
Once you purchase your Mandala, I will contact you to schedule a short interview (about 15-20 minutes) via Skype or telephone. We’ll discuss the animals, natural elements and colors that resonate with you. From that information I will create an intuitive artwork within the Personal Compass Mandala framework that will be uniquely yours.
Mandalas traditionally are based on the circle, square and triangle. The Personal Compass Mandala incorporates all three of these within the structure of a Compass, where each of the cardinal directions represents an aspect of your way of being in the world. North is your essential self; East is the inner, feminine aspect; West is the outer, masculine aspect; South is your life challenge. The center of the Mandala holds an image representing the element that most resonates for you: Air, Earth, Water, Fire . The Mandala is encircled by a scrollwork of spirals, one of the oldest and most universal sacred symbols, representing the journey of life.
