Mandalas of the Celts Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Here are 32 of the most mysterious Celtic mandalas, embedded with secrets and symbols. Theres something hypnotic and almost revelatory about filling in your own colorful interpretations of the intricate spiral designs—and as you make the ancient serpent motifs come alive, you may experience the same sense of primordial power that inspired the Celts to treat them as sacred objects.

Synopsis:

The fascinating symbols intertwined in these ancient Celtic mandalas conceal secrets, which you can discover as you become absorbed in painting them yourself. That's why you'll want to explore this collection of 32 of the most mysterious designs that have been left to us from these lost civilizations. There's something hypnotic and almost revelatory about filling in your own colorful interpretations of the intricate spiral designs--a kind of visual version of chanting. As you make the ancient serpent motifs come alive, you may experience the same sense of primordial power that inspired the Celts to treat them as sacred objects. And your concentration, when you fill in the labyrinthine coils and swirls, knots and weaves, may bring you the same sense of serenity and peace that they meant in eons past. This is no ordinary "coloring book"; it's a unique way to connect with spiritual and aesthetic realities that most moderns have allowed to disappear. 64 pages, 32 b/w illus., 11 x 8 1/4.
