Hand painted mandala 30"x 30" acrylic, mixed medium, gold leafing and Swarovski crystals. A large Sri Yantra with a contempory twist. The Sri Yantra dates back at least several thousand years and used as a pictorial representation of the Divine and a powerful image for meditation. The Sri is considered the “Mother of all Yantras.” It depicts the creative forces of the universe in their polarity of masculine and feminine with the upward facing triangles representing Shiva or male energy and the downward facing triangles representing Shakti or female energy. The center point is the origin of creation called the Bindu or the absolute, while the outer region represents the material world.
