Mandala Collage

Mandalas are spiritual symbols in Hinduism and Buddhism, they are meant to represent the universe. They have become a popular subject for art assignments because they are so versatile. Collage is a deceptively simple medium, in my experience it can take forever and never go anywhere, it seemed like an obvious match with mandalas. These mandalas are relatively quick, clean, accessible, and always give amazing results… if you follow the project requirements.
