Comment: Like you, I thought a mandala was only an artistic design. I will complete a page in the deco, probably witha mandala for a coloring book. I was thinking of drawing one based on the symbol of the Triune God but then saw that the design is also assoociated with witchcraft. When I was in elementary school we spend a lot of time drawing designs with our compasses. I guess they could also be considered mandalas. Thank you for all the extras.
