Mandalas


2013-2014


The series Mandalas is part of the Mindscapes that were presented at a solo exhibition at Open C.A.S.E.


The word Mandala means, in Sanskrit, circle. The circle symbolising the womb of creation -round, total, complete.
The word is derived from the root Manda, meaning essence, energy or spirit, to which the suffix la, meaning container or vessel, has been added. Manda-la becomes thus the container of essence. The center of a mandala symbolises usually the essence -the 'seed', 'sperm', the salient starting point- that the circumference is visualised as grasping.
