Hub Mandala by Virginia Fleck

135 – Hub Mandala

Artist Virginia Fleck created this mandala masterpiece with two things: plastic bags and tape. Normally we would just toss these bags into the trash; Virginia, on the other hand, saw their potential and created a whole series of plastic bag mandalas.

Girl with a Pearl Earring remade by Jane Perkins

64 – Buttons and Things Mandala

At first glance this may seem like an odd choice for the Mandala of the Day. However upon closer inspection you’ll notice why I chose it. Jane Perkins, an artist in found things (her words), re-created Vermeer’s most beautiful painting, Girl with a Pearl Earring, into this stunning piece of art using mostly round buttons and other round found items.
