Mandala by pagit Mandala by pagit
google it if you don't know what i'm talking about :bucktooth:

we had to make one for World History AP; it's supposed to represent something about yourself... i don't really know how much i have to explain this... :shrug: and we were allowed to go "organic" and not follow the traditional pattern

i spent about 3.5 hours on this last night :D
and i really enjoyed doing it!
yay for creative homework :w00t!:



more psychedelic art by me: [link]





found it here!

This is amazing. I am studying mandalas as part of my master's degree in transpersonal psychology right now. And as part of this class I had to make a drawing of what kinds of imagery I have during meditation... I saw (and drew) swirls and stripes exactly like what you have incorporated here. This is gorgeous and fascinating!

Well, since most behavioral and life patterns move in circles or spirals overall, mandalas can be like writing in that you gain clarity on some of these patterns by manifesting them on paper (or on screen). Whereas in writing you use words to flesh out and contemplate things, with mandalas you use colors, patterns, imagery, etc. Also, the nature of drawing a mandala, which requires focus and repetition, can be a form of moving meditation.

Why does a mandala represent you?
Do you consider yourself equal?

i consider myself trying to seek balance, because i believe everything has an opposite; there was originally a small yin-yang symbol in the center, but it got smuged with black...
