120 – Gilded Tires Mandala

I really enjoy showcasing up-cycled “mandalas” and I particularly love this one. I found this image on onlighting.blogspot.com, although it seems as if they found it somewhere else. So unfortunately I can provide no additional information about it.

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.
