100 meditative patterns and symbols to color, inspired by ancient traditions
"Symbols are the imaginative signposts of life." Margot Asquith
Ancient symbols share wisdom, tell stories, decorate, protect, and inspire. We are fascinated by them and drawn to themand now we can color them. Whether representing messages about daily life, evoking an emotion, or even conjuring up something magical, the images in this book beckon to any would-be artist. They are inspired from actual metal works, textiles, drawings, historical records and evidence left behind from cultures past. Many of the ancient designs actually served as meditative tools, so the act of coloring in these symbols may offer a double dose of calm as the act of coloring invites us to be present in the moment.

This is my second book I've purchased from artist Cher Kaufmann and I have not been disappointed! The designs are very detailed and intricate. I am also very impressed with the symbol guide at the back of the book and the meaning behind them. Coloring has never been so relaxing. Can't wait for the next one!
