Mandalas & Mind Games

Mandalas play a large role in the theme of mind games as they represent both spiritual and ritual symbolism in religion. They are strongly used in meditation which is a way to play with your mind which is why I have decided to incorporate them into this design to sell project.

The word ‘mandala’ has also become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.

Here are some examples of different mandalas by other artists:

The word mandala is from the classical indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean circle, a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness of life itself. It is a diagram of the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.

Below are some mandalas done in my sketchbook:
