Overview

The mandala is an archetypal symbol of wholeness that is replicated on a cosmic scale—not only in manifestations of art, architecture, and religion but also throughout the natural universe. The mandala represents concepts and primal patterns upon which all physical things are created. It is no surprise that we are attracted to mandalas because they illustrate the core of who and what we are.

The Mandala Book is a visual symphony of over 500 stunning images from nature and civilization, all related to the mandalic patterns and shapes that are explored in the text. Drawing from mathematics, history, science, and art, Lori Bailey Cunningham takes you on a journey that comprises the infinitely small to the immeasurably grand, from prehistoric petroglyphs to present-day works of art. And, at the end of the book, thirteen beautiful mandalas are included to photocopy and color-in for fun or meditation.
