Description:

This mural is a prayer mandala, with each of the painted lines representing a prayer that the artist repeats. Emphasizing the medium of time and intention, the mural has an overwhelming number of painted lines. Reminiscent of a celestial night sky, the central gold geometric mandala radiates as a reflection of the Sun, surrounded by neighboring stars and the dark matter between. The central geometric mandala is based on Pythagorean mathematics, utilizing the ratio proportion of Phi, which is the same proportion found everywhere in nature. The mural could also be interpreted as the central gold mandala representing the self, with all the surrounding golden circles representing all the people in our network of connections.
