Mandala

A mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe.

 

Nature builds up her refined and invisible architecture, with a delicacy eluding our conception, yet with a symmetry and beauty which we are never weary of admiring.

  John Herschel

My obsession with the natural world began as a little girl and has manifested in pure admiration of the natural environment. Mindfully placing each element into a mandala is a peaceful process for me and its symmetry (perfect and imperfect) comforting.
