Artist's collection


An abstract geometric pattern painting inspired by Tibetan mandalas.

As used in Buddhism and Hinduism, mandala refers to certain tangible objects,
which may represent the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, a microcosm of the universe from the human perspective.

During meditation a mandala can be used  as an object for focusing attention. 
The symmetrical geometric shapes tend to draw the attention towards their centre. 
So calming our busy minds, we can get absorbed in the "here and now" and reach the spiritual inner light in our being.
