A Mandala is an ancient and potent symbol found in several Asian religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, and Bon.The Tibetan word for mandala, kyingkor, means ‘centre [and] circle.’ This term implies an intimate relationship between the core and the periphery, as noted by Professor Charles Ramble, in the introduction of the exhibition catalogue.
The sixteen unique mandalas of this exhibition were specifically commissioned for the Mandalas: Mirrors of the Cosmos art exhibition that will open on October 17, 2013 at Bel Air Fine Art Gallery in Geneva, Switzerland. Every mandala was drawn and painted according to the precise iconometric prescriptions set out in the ancient texts of the Bon religion.
