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 know as “seed of life”. Starting on the center designs was interesting. I put a lot of though 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 probject 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″.
