Community Mandala with Sheniz Janmohamed

 

Saturday, September 3, 1 pm – 4 pm

At the AGM's Pattern Migration Satellite Exhibition, Square One Shopping Centre, near Holt Renfrew | FREE

 

A mandala translates as 'circle' from Sanskrit. The mandala is often used as a symbolic tool for ritualistic practices in Buddhist and Vedic traditions. Nature mandalas are created by sourcing found materials in nature and allowing patterns to develop through the act of making, rather than planning. Mandalas are destroyed and taken apart after being created, as a reminder of the impermanence of all things.
