Paper Fans 1

Springtime Fans as a Snapshot of an Energetic Journey by Shastina 2015


These pink fans look to me like they are revolving around a central energy force. As the light flows from the central flower and shines from the green stars, it beams onto the other shapes forming the centre of the energetic journey and causing them, including the fans to revolve.  Everything is to be held like this for a moment, a snapshot of an energetic journey.  Yet even in its still state, you can see the way it all looks when revolving.  

As the fans resemble ones you could make by concertina folding paper and then, spreading one end of it out to create a fan shape. I thought that paper fans would be the name I'd use for this collection of mandalas. This is the first of the collection.

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

Mandala of Sailing Boats & Stars, by Shastina only, The Mandala Group 2014
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.
