The history of the Mandalas can be traced back to the lands of India. The word ’Mandala’ is derived from one of the ancient languages of India, Sanskrit, meaning ’the circle’. Despite their origins, the use of mandalas can be found all over the world, the most prominent and famous for being its usage by the Tibetan Monks following Buddhism.
Starfish spring to mind. The 5 pointed arms around the body of the starfish form a simple pattern. And octopi and jellyfish can also seem to form similar patterns when viewed from above as they swim along. And sea anemones, and so on.
Now, if you are thinking that you might run out of designs, then fret no more. Aside from the innumerable designs which this drawing machine can do, you can also put more power in your drawing arsenal by purchasing some of the other Mandala disks which are available worldwide.
How about vegetables as geometric designs? Cut a tomato in half crosswise, and you’ll find a centre piece of the stem, with segments around it, each containing the seeds and juice. A cross-section of a bell pepper shows the veins and seeds, and the underside of a mushroom reveals the stem and the many lines of gills. Artichokes form one of my favourite designs. All of these are mandalas in nature.
This new craze has gone beyond its use for doodling or a form of activity for relaxation, or an activity for the elderly. Hobbyists are finding this to be a fun activity and are using their finished art pieces in craft projects.
So, what are you waiting for? Buy your kid his very own Mandala Designer Drawing Machine and have the most creative and fun Christmas ever. You guys will not regret it.
