Day de Dada Mandala Mail Art Table

The word Mandala means “circle”. A Mandala represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds.

The mandala appears to us in all aspects of life, the Earth, the Sun, the Moon and more obviously the circles of life encompassing friends, family and communities.

Day de Dada Ground Mandala (by Margaret Chase)

People decorate the Mandala with found objects – keeping the pattern balanced.
