Art of the Day: Monday July 23, 2018

Sunflower Ladybug Vignette

- by Pamela K Wilhelm

This week's theme: Helianthus

They are named for the sun. Their symmetry is based on Fibonacci numbers. They are native to the Americas, but have traveled widely and have captured the eyes and imagination of people all over the world.



This was one of many mandalas created after my trip to Egypt with my husband in 1999. This one was inspired by King Tut's falcon amulet. The design reminds me of the rising phoenix, a transformation. Of all of my mandalas, the Falcon is the one that I resonate with the most and best represents the dramatic effect Egypt had on me. It's message: "Let me rise above my fear and soar like the one I am meant to be."
