Trying my hand at the Mandala Art


Mandala making is a sacred art of the Indian religions. It is aptly considered as a ‘microcosm of the universe’ and its geometric shape, which is either a square or a circle, aids such significant representation. Inspired by the concept, I have tried my hand at it, though quite ineptly. If there’s one thing that I noticed during its creation, it was the element of great control that I had to exercise. Creativity and control, an apparent oxymoron, are so intertwined in this art that it becomes difficult to draw a line between them. I think that is what this world is all about: a harmony between the opposites.

Also I made it using tea extract. It was fun!
