Day 223

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55; 50 mm, ISO 800; f/5,6; 1/40 s.

Seems like lately I’ve been surrounded by artists, and this time is about my sister.

She was assigned to make a “mandala” a couple of weeks ago, I knew it came out very well and she got a great grade, but I had not seen it until today; my parents were visiting her during the weekend and my dad came back to Pereira yesterday and brought it; I loved it, the figure is really big and has such beautiful details; it was made with paper, wood, sequins, cardboard and even straws; I perfectly understand why she got that grade.

Meaning of “Mandala”: Is a Sanskrit world that means “Circle”. It represents wholeness and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself; it describes the material and non-material realities, is considered sacred and it’s said that it reveals some inner truth about people and their world.

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.

Regards.

Hola!

Ultimamente he estado rodeado de arte y artistas, hoy el turno es para mi hermana.

En la universidad le pidieron hacer un “mandala” hace unas semanas, supe que le había ido muy bien pero no lo conocía hasta hoy, mis papas y mi hermano estaban visitándola este fin de semana ayer lo trajeron con ellos; me encantó, es muy grande, está hecho con carton, papel, madera, lentejuelas y hasta pitillos, los detalles son impresionantes.

Significado del Mandala: Es una palabra sánscrita que significa “Círculo”. Representa la totalidad y puede ser visto como un modelo de estructura organizacional de la propia vida; describe las realidades materiales y no materiales, se considera sagrado en algunas religiones y dicen que revela verdades internas sobre la gente y su mundo.

Críticas, comentarios y/o sugerencias son bienvenidas.

Saludos!

Pablo.
