Angels Spinning...

Angels Spin Around by The Mandala Group -Cathy, FizzBW, Jenni, Jo Jo & Shastina,2014
This year's seasonal mandala is another one with angels. This time they encircle a group of stars and each has its own decoration.  The light catches the mandala in places and parts of the stars light up, as it has been made in relief using wooden angels and then photographed with a little help from a friend.  The wooden angels were painted using acrylic ink and decorations added, including feathers that we've up-cycled.  The dove on the left hand side in particular shines out from the mandala as its emblem of peace.

Beacons of Hope Mandala 4

Despite extreme disadvantages in life (she was deaf and blind), Helen Keller had some of the most profound thoughts. 
Thoughts to inspire, like the one above and they inspire still.

Beacons of Hope Mandala 2

Quoting Karen Goldman, with Angel mandala by Shastina only, 2014

*
Angels are lighthouses, how nice! 
Although I found this thought inspiring, I didn't know anything about Karen Goldman, so I looked her up on 'Google' and found out she's an author that has written some books about angels.

Beacons of Hope Mandala 1

Quoting Oscar Wilde, with Mandala by Shastina only 2014.

*
 I am hoping this will be the first of a collection of mandalas, to honour the true beacons of hope that can be gained from little inspirational sayings.  By beginning with this timeless saying of inspiration & wit; 'We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars' taken from Lady Windermere's Fan, by Oscar Wilde, I hope to show these little inspirational sayings, from some great people can be true Lighthouses of the Spirit.  So here is my, more humble, offering of a mandala to illustrate what I am quoting today and which I hope is reminiscent of the stars in the night sky.

Fruity

Fruity, by The Mandala Group 2014

 

A note from Cathy about Fruity

 'This mandala is a design to uplift the spirit with its happy colours and its simplicity.  Colours certainly do have this effect on me (and I think most people). 
 It also reminds me of sunshine and spring and childhood elation at the coming 
of spring and holidays!'   ~ Cathy
