Artist Description

A Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘essence’ and ‘having’. It is a spiritual teaching tool for meditation and for establishing a sacred space. Traditionally it is represented by a symmetrical circular motif on a square base, representing wholeness and the organisational structure of life.

These bone Mandala’s, created spontaneously, are a reminder of our relation to the infinite world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds. Carl Jung refers to the Mandala as “a representation of the unconscious self” and “a safe refuge of inner reconciliation”.

Each of these Mandala’s was created on different natural and manmade surfaces, using a variety of sun-bleached donkey and blesbuck bones found on a farm in the Limpopo. In their death, these creatures continue to create something beautiful, however temporary.
