My favorite part of painting a big mandala is the feeling of almost physically standing inside the sacred geometry patterns. I have completed this piece for Lulushanti Yoga Studio in Albufeira. The focal point being the magical Lotus flower. Magical…because this has been a spiritual symbol in Eastern religions for thousands of years. The Lotus flower grows from the bottom of streams and muddy ponds to rise above water and bloom. It symbolically represents being fully grounded in earth yet aspiring towards the divine and encourages us all to aspire towards this happy state aswell.
