Mandala - Circle and Square

The square symbolically stands for earthly life, earthly matter, stability, order and rational thinking. It represents the balance between the four seasons and the four cardinal directions. When a square appears with the circle of a mandala, it is harmonizing the earthly and the cosmic.

I love to draw and paint shapes. I like to see if I can make up shapes and combine shapes to make up something I haven't seen before. I just liked the unusual look of this mandala...and I loved painting it. And that's what it's all about, right?

Much of my information about Mandalas came from the book "Mandala Workbook - For Inner Self-Discovery" by Anneke Huyser.
