Sacred Geometry – Seeds of Life

Sacred Geometry. This is something I just recently came across. I thought it would be something I could use to give me some awesome shapes for my mandalas.

This one is called Flower of Life. It is created using a sequence of circles, branching out from a center point. It is also known as “seed of life”. Starting on the center designs was interesting. I put a lot of thought into how I wanted each flower to be intertwined, but I also wanted the center flower to be slightly different from the outer ones.

Branching out from the flowers forced me to use some designs I haven’t ever used. It also allowed me to tweak designs I have used in the past.  Choosing the right designs was something I didn’t take lightly. I wanted to keep the flower petals around the outer circle. I wanted to bring the name to life.

The final project is so visually stimulating that I was, maybe more proud than I’ve been with a project. It was relaxing and easy to complete once I figured out exactly which designs I was going to use.

This is a closer look at some of the details that you might miss by looking at the picture as a whole

Overall, I am very pleased with how this turned out. I used Staedtler triplus fineliner for the whole project. The completed Mandala is about 14″×14″.  I would love to know what you think about this piece. Let me know in the comments below!
