312 – Human Tower Mandala

This amazing photo captures an astounding moment of human ingenuity, spirit and strength. These people form the foundation of a soon-to-be human tower, known as a “castell” as part of the annual Castells Competition held in the Catalonia region of Spain. This moment in time showcases a very dramatic human mandala.

The 2014 International Business News article that reported on the 25th annual event made it difficult for me to pick out one photo for the MotD. So I opted to show two others…although I highly recommended visiting the article post to view all of the stunning/dramatic…sometimes gruesome…images from the event.

These wonderful photos demonstrate for us the power of human collaboration, will and spirit. Amazing!

Happy Coloring!
