The fascinating magic created by mandalas, an artistic journey full of surprises and the art of Milena Carbone – all in this weekly newsletter.
“Mandala Magic” By Sheba Blitz
Before you visit this exhibition, it is necessary to know what a mandala actually is. As an art form, mandalas first appeared within Buddhist art in India around 2000 years ago. The mandala is basically a geometric pattern that is meant to represent wholeness and a model for the organizational structure of life itself. In fact, in Tibetan Buddhism, a mandala offering is symbolic to offering the entire universe.
The art of creating mandalas is highly specialized and requires great skill and precision. Mandalas are also sometimes used as an aid in meditation to focus your attention. Even the slightest abnormality or lack of symmetry can cause a distraction in such cases; hence the making of mandalas is a skilled job which requires a really great artist. And when you look at Sheba Blitz’s work, you know instantly that she is one of them.
Sheba has created the spectacular mandalas displayed at this wonderful exhibition at UASL by hand. As you continue to view these beautiful works of art rich with Hindu and Buddhist symbolism, you instantly get the three feelings described in the tagline written above the mandalas – peace, love and joy.
