Book Description

7 Oct 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous pictures - best book on the subject 31 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A superbly produced hard back book full of images of mandalas - not just man made ones but throughout nature - at the macro and micro scales - and in works of art. Wonderfully written giving deep insight into the meaning of mandalas, and the most common constituent symbols. Highly recommended - best book on the subject.

The introduction provides an in depth exploration of how mandala patterns are everywhere - we find them in nature, in our everyday experience, in manmade objects, within our cells, and, as the centre of our own universe, we are part of an ever evolving mandala.

The chapter titles are Zero, Circle, Dyad, Triangle, Square, Pentagon, Hexagon, and Patterns. As the author moves from an exploration of zero to the circle we are taken on a journey into understanding how all the following shapes have as their starting point the circle - "All shapes spring from the womb of the circle, beginning with the dyad, an almond shape that represents the duality of two". Each shape is explored in detail and illustrated with colour photos - the majority of the images are from the natural world but there also photos of manmade structures.

This book is a wonderfully gentle introduction to the geometry that surrounds us and permeates our universe. Topics covered include the Golden Ratio, the Fibonacci series, spirals, helices, symmetry, and fractals. The numerous illustrations help bring the text alive. I love this book and highly recommend it if you are interested in mandalas and the geometry that surrounds us.

The book ends with 13 mandala designs that you can photocopy and colour.

The author, Lori Bailey Cunningham, is the founder of the Mandala Project a non profit organisation that promotes peace through art and education.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book - very nice photos 9 Dec 2011
By Anders
Not read it completely yet, but seems like a nice book with some splendid photos to illustrate the shapes ('mandalas'). Somewhat 'hippie-like' text at times but that's ok. My own hobby is recreational maths with associated natural patterns and interesting related shapes - if that is your idea of 'fun', buy the book. Recommended!
