Is this awesome or what! When I first saw this photo, it took me a moment to realize that rather than it hanging off a wall, this beautiful mandala is resting atop his head!
In 2009, Findout.Tumblr.com posted this photo of a Nahua Indian celebrating Santiago apostle in Puebla, Mexico.
Everything about this man’s regalia vibrates with beautiful energy…especially his headdress. The colors are just stunning. And while the outer band color choices are a repeating pattern, the inner bands of concentric circles are random…an excellent example of symmetry and asymmetry working together.
As I look at it, my left (logic) brain begins to wonder…how would you even go about making something like this? It would need to be lightweight, steady and sturdy.
Then I hear this voice in my head that says
“stop analyzing it and just bask in its beauty”
