Kaleidoscopes and Mandalas

About This Group

Main image at left is 'Winter Dandelion' by Deborah Smith. You can see more of Deborah's work on her FAA site.

Also, check out our other contest winners from the December 'Snowflake' contest.

We'll be highlighting a new image and artist each month, and rotating the featured images below as well, so check back often!

Welcome! Our group is for those who enjoy these unique expressions of art and belief.

Group Rules:

1. Paintings, digitally altered images and digital art are all welcome that fit the descriptions below:

Kaleidoscopes for the purpose of this group, represent a symmetrical complex pattern of shapes, materials and colors.

Maṇḍala is a Sanskrit word meaning 'circle.' In the Buddhist and Hindu religious traditions sacred art often takes a mandala form. The basic form of most Hindu and Buddhist mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Mandalas often exhibit radial balance.

2. Submission limit of three (3) images per member per day please. This provides balanced exposure for all members in the group.

3. To maintain the theme of the group...the administrator reserves the right to reject members and submissions at their discretion. We feature the unexpected when it arrives to reflect the focus of the group.
