A mandala is a spiritual and symbolic pattern which represents the cosmos and infinite and can be used for meditation. For me a mandala represents peace and calmness, and the whole process of putting the piece together was calm and happy. I poured all that calmness and happiness into it as I made it. The meditative process of the bead weaving is perfect for this piece. The beads glisten and change when viewed from different directions .I made it to reflect the peaceful living in the outdoors of the Lake District amongst the mountains. This mandala is in the form of the circle inside the square with a centre point drawing you in and I've used my favourite Mondrian primary colours. I hope you love it as much as I do, and it reflects the beauty of the universe back at you. Made with Japanese Miyuki beads. The beads are woven separately and laid over an acrylic painted canvas. The bead weaving here is a technical challenge to create the open square form. These are NOT loom woven but hand woven. It is the first in a series.
