"The Mandala Book" is a visual symphony, filled with 500 stunning mandalic images from nature and civilization. As an archetypal symbol of wholeness, mandalas are replicated on a grand scale in both human culture and the natural universe. Drawing from history, science, religion and art, Lori Bailey Cunningham conducts a journey that spans from prehistoric petroglyphs to Carl Jung, from tiny particles of matter to entire galaxies. She explains the concepts of mandalas and patterns clearly and simply, showing how they are at the root of life itself.
Lori Bailey Cunningham founded the Mandala Project (www.mandalaproject.org), a non-profit organisation that promotes peace through art and education. She has led mandala workshops around the world. Cunningham is the author of another book about mandalas and had a one-person show of her paintings in western Washington, where she lives.
