First Mandala Art Work for Sudbury

Sudbury's first Mandala Art was created during the opening of the Market in downtown Sudbury June 3rd 2017.  Mandela created by Naomi Robinson of Lo-Ellen Park Secondary shown with Judi Straugthan and Linda Cartier of the Sudbury Arts Council.  Pictures of Mandala can be seen on top of page with other Arts Council event highlights 

What is a Mandala: The word "mandala" is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean "circle," a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself--a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.  The mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles we call earth, sun, and moon, as well as conceptual circles of friends, family, and community.

The mandala can take many forms like the example below but must have a symmetrically round composition such as illustrated with the area elements multi-coloured .   They can be of any size and as many can participate with each contributing to the creation.
