"Raízul" | Gallery: Designs

in art •  2 years ago 

I'm a huge mandala fan, so I'm really not sure why I haven't done more of them.
 
They've been significant to me since even before the days I used to call myself a pagan. As a child, I'd stare at them, marvelling at the intricate details and patterns, and in school I'd often doodle them in my text-books, creating little mandala distractions for whoever inherited the book the following year ;P

 
This is Raízul... raiz means 'roots' and azul, 'blue' ... As simple as that =) ...

“Sorrow prepares you for joy.
 
It violently sweeps everything out of your house,
so that new joy can find space to enter.
 
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart,
so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.
 
It pulls up the rotten roots,
so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
 
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart,
far better things will take their place.”

-- Rumi
