6th grade - Mandala

Mandala is a Sanskrit word for 'circle'.  Mandalas can be found in many cultures around the world, from Buddhist meditation circles, to Navajo sand circle art, to circular walking labyrinths used to center the mind.  Even Christian Rose Windows have their historical foundations in Mandalas.

To learn more about Mandalas, I invite you to visit the Mandala Project, where you can see many beautiful examples of mandalas from artists all over the world!
