Do you know what a mandala is? In the Indian religions, a mandala is a special ritual symbol that represents the universe. Due to their circular designs, mandalas also symbolize the notion that life is never ending, often being used as an aid to meditation. As part of spiritual art, they are believed to have healing powers, not only for the viewers but also for the artists who put their emotions into the creative process. At Fine Art Shippers, we had the pleasure of meeting one of these artists – Esther van der Graaf – whose captivating mandala art is absolutely amazing and inspiring.
