Koi Mandala - Collaboration

Medium: Watercolor, water soluble pencils, ink
Size: 2.5" x 3.5"

This symbolic painting is sure to bring you into a meditative state as your eyes follow the swirling koi & mandalas...:D The Sanskrit symbol for "Om" sits peacefully in the center of this painting while 2 large koi circle it in a yin-yang position. Om & Mandalas are both representative of the universe in their own ways and often aid in meditation.


This painting is a collaboration between me and UK artist Francesca Burras aka *dancing-girl . She inked the mandalas and did a light watercolor wash, then she sent the painting to me & I added the koi & Om + color. You can view the WIP pics here [link]

Very pretty, I love it.

We've got a bunch around the house that we bought from India. Sticker like things, but you can put them on the car and stuff.
