Candida Valentino’ Mandala Designs
Candida Valentino is a Creative Artist who has been studying & engaging with many Asian & Central Asian Cultures. Her Mandala paintings are therefore something which come naturally & are created in a space of contemplation and meditation.
She originally trained as a Costume and Stage designer for Theatre and Dance.
“Mandala” is a Sanskrit word meaning sacred circle or pattern. The original purpose for creating a mandala was as a meditation tool to awaken to one’s true immortal Self by redirecting the outflowing creative energies of the spiritual seeker inward and upward through the spine toward the centre of the spiritual eye. This spiritual eye is located within the midsection of the brain in an area between the eyebrows. It is the highest spiritual centre for human creation out of which all sacred symbols and revealed truth of one’s nature arises.
Mandalas have been used in many cultures as a way of focusing with intention to create and be at one with the divine. Just to gaze upon a Rose window in one of the great cathedrals fills our souls with love and joy
So a mandala can be used purposefully or just for the pleasure of the design beyond the meaning.
Below are some of Candida’s Unique Hand painted/coloured/appliquéd/textured Mandalas.
The above Mandalas with explanations will be available in larger images soon!!
