Regal and geometric yet soft and sensual, the Purple Lotus mandala fuses symmetry with color; angle with hue; in an effort to cross-pollinate ideas and concepts in one round container. The circle represents the wholeness of humanity, the universe, and the divine maternal. There are no hard edges in the circle. It can expand like rings in a pond, endlessly. Roundness implies comfort, security, oneness, and equality. Community, family, and friendship are circular in concept and form and expand as we move through our lives.
And the seasons they go round and round And the painted ponies go up and down We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game
“The Circle Game”
– Joni Mitchell
