Mandala Designs

(mahn dä’ lä) [Sanskrit- circle, center] a traditional design often utilizing the circle- symbol of the cosmos-and the square-symbol of the manmade world.  Mandalas generally exhibit a center, radial symmetry, and cardinal points.

(after Argüelles, Mandala)

These universal symbols can be calming and healing,  energizing and motivating, or both. 
They are found throughout nature and in most cultures of the earth.

Christine’s mandalas are drawn free hand without concern for exact mathematics or measurement,
and express the dynamic energy of gesture drawings.
