This week’s MotD theme: Metal
Metal artists, Jima and Carlie Abbott, of Mixed Metal Jewels, created these exquisite metal mandalas “composed of multi metal layers, the top layer pierced with a thin jewelers saw blade in a variety of patterns and the back layer(s) textured by stamping or roller printing.”
I absolutely LOVE these mandalas! The designs, the patterns, the layout, the colors…all of it; they are stunning! And look at their amazing attention to details. They state that the “ones pictured here were all created during the last 10 or 12 years.”
Inspiration for Today
The Abbott’s mandalas remind us that we too are multi-layered beings and that while one or two layers by themselves lack any beauty or anything interesting to see, combined they form a beautiful masterpiece. Reminding us also that we are more than just the layer we present to others or that others present to us. What’s beneath the surface?
