I absolutely LOVE how meditative drawing Mandala designs are for me! Check out this sped up video of this gorgeous Mandala / Henna -like design, and try one for yourself. Don't forget to share your designs with me :)
I had such an amazing time transforming these wooden shapes from Michaels into a traditional South Indian Chettiar doll set, which we often dsiplay over Navrathri. I used e6000 glue to secure the large and small balls, and to secure the lentils and beans to the "pots". The dolls are less than 10 CM high, with the pots standing at just about 2cm.
As most of you do know, I am a Bharatanatyam Dancer. I absolutely love the art, and it is something that I share with my mom, who runs a huge dance academy in Mississauga. This is actually a very small doodle (I left my pen there as a size reference) of my mom.
