What is a Mandala?

The circle with its center, which connects the Mandala creations of all times, is the archetypal symbol of wholeness. Without even uttering a word, Mandalas speak deeply to every human being.

In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, a microcosm of the Universe from the human perspective.»

About Regula Maeder’s Mandalas

My Mandalas are energy pictures for the 21st century. They are a creative dance of vibrant life energies. In the playful change of colors and shapes reflect the infinite facets of life. What remains unchanged is the resting pole in the center. Each Mandala has a name, which describes its basic energy.

I create my latest Energy Mandala creations by hand on the computer tablet. This boundless technology fascinates and inspires me to express the sensed energies in very differentiated ways.

The mandalas painted on watercolour paper originate from an earlier phase of her work. She used watercolour pencils, acrylic paint and metal foils. The size of the pictures is between 50×50 cm and 86×86 cm (incl. passe-partout). You can find these mandalas in the galleries “Hand Painted Mandalas“.
