Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning circle. This type of art draws the viewers eye to the center, reflecting order, beauty, and calm. It takes the mind away from what is outside of the circle, representing frustration, stress, confusion and disorder. We find mandalas everywhere in nature such as snowflakes, flowers, fruit, trees, etc. Concentrating or meditating on a mandala is said to cause physiological changes in the body, like slowing down the heart rate and relaxing a person.
