Circular forms in art are often referred to as mandalas, the Sanskrit word for "sacred circle." For thousands of years the creation of circular, often geometric designs has been part of spiritual practices around the world and almost every culture has revered the power of the circle.
Miami-based artist Peter Patrick Barreda, who draws these amazing mandalas in pen and ink on acid-free paper, is ‘fascinated by origins and causes, and the deeply-hidden reasons behind everything’. His works are astoundingly detailed eye-candy. His Okshirahm Sky Mandala is especially gorgeous.
