Cubular Mandala, by Aspen Moon, July 2012. Acrylic on Canvas, 40″ x 40″. Frame painted by the Artist, 44″ x 44″ finished size. ( Private Collection )
This is an excellent piece for meditation. It’s my first metaphorical mandala work and represents the awakening or self realizing of the Cube Consciousness, and then the iterations of self awareness that come out of reflection of self. It’s a metaphor for the process of coming into consciousness and material for long pondering, with lots of symbols and content for reflection and discovery hidden throughout. It was really fun to create! Photos of the six-month process to paint it are available on my Facebook Page.
