San Francisco artist, Andres Amador created this spectacular prayer mandala in the sand using just a rake. Look for the two people standing in the mandala for some perspective on just how big this mandala is.
Recently, the International Peace Belt project (part of the Artists for World Peace organization) invited Andres to participate in this project where he wore the peace belt, adorned with precious stones and coins from all over the world, while he created his art.
I appreciate the simplicity of this mandala design and at the same time the complexity of maintaining the symmetry and simplicity throughout its creation. Add to that the time constraints of the creating it in between high tides when at such time the ocean will erase any trace of its existence.
I previously featured Andres’ amazing art on day 46 – Beach Sand Mandala.
