While training to be a yoga teacher in Bali, Sang Eun Ahn often sat with other students around a mandala and sharing positive thoughts and vibes. She felt light, whole and creative. The mandalas were beautifully therapeutic and healing. Since then, she has been waiting for the right opportunity to use this beautiful and nurturing piece of nature in her artwork .
Mandalas represents wholeness. The life of the flower consists of overlapping circles that bring positive energy and spiritual enlightenment. Mandalas can be created using many types of flowers including roses, lotus flowers, and daffodils.
