Mandala is the Sanskrit word for circle — a geometric design that represents the universe. It is common in Asian cultures — particularly in religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The symmetry of the mandala and its center-focussed design give it an aura of peace, relaxation, and higher consciousness. It lends itself beautifully to paper curling art — simultaneously exhibiting simple symmetries and complex patterns. Paper Sweetly’s quilled mandala artwork is perfect for those seeking to create an atmosphere of peace and joy.
