Chakra Mandala

chakrasThis is probably my favourite mandala, and it’s my most recent. It depicts the 7 chakras (energy centers in Yogic tradition) of the human body, and a kundalini serpent that has woken up from the root chakra (which appears to be choking the man… that was an accident!) The whole thing was drawn in pencil, except for the outlines and the fire which was done with paint, to capture its untamed nature. I like this mandala because of its contrast between the still and meditative man and the minimalistic patterns, to the roaring fire surrounding him.

  1. Hi, I like the concept of Mandalas. I will try it sometime, InshaAllah. One thing that caught my attention was that all of your mandalas have snakes in them. In psychology is it a negative symbol or a positive one? In my culture snakes in dreams symbolize enemies.
