Mandala 03 The word "Mandala" comes from ancient Indian Sanskrit, meaning circle or circle picture. The circle has always been a magnet for people. The circle, like all geometric forms, is arranged around a center. Circular formations can be found in all cultures. In many cultures it is a symbol of the sun, without whose light-giving power nothing can exist. He is also a symbol of endlessness - no beginning and no end. In nature, we come across the original form of the circle everywhere: the shape of the sunflower, the starfish or the cross section of a tree trunk. If a raindrop falls into the pond, concentric circles are created. Snowflakes, flowers, everywhere you can see circular shapes - from the tiny ice crystal to the unimaginably large solar system.
