Size: 21" diameter Weight: 7 pounds (2.26 kg) Mandalas have long been used as a tool for meditation and relaxation. The intricate patterns and geometric shapes of mandalas have a calming effect on the mind and can help to reduce stress and anxiety. The act creating mosaic mandalas is a lovely meditative practice, allowing me to focus my thoughts and quiet my mind. In addition to the calming effects of the pattern, the color blue enhances relaxation and tranquility. Blue is associated with the throat chakra and promotes communication, self-expression, and inner truth. The color red, often seen as a complementary color to blue, is associated with the root chakra and promote grounding, stability, and physical energy. Incorporating red into this mandala balanced the calming effects of blue with a sense of grounding and vitality.
