[en] This is a gallery with selection of my mandalas that I create in big formats or as miniatures.
Mandala (Sanskrit circle) is originally a Buddhist and Hindu symbol, a mystical diagram used in meditation. It refers to circular or square images with a center, that are drawn, painted or modeled. Their purpose is to help a meditating person to exclude all that is outside, to concentrate on what is illustrated within the mandala’s circle, to create his “sacred space”, and to enter the state of trance.
In the West, the mandala drawing was popularized by psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung as a means of stabilizing and integrating inner self.
Today, this is a generic term that denotes any diagram or regular, radially symmetrical geometric drawing that symbolizes the concept of a universe in a symbolic or metaphysical way. Find out more about mandala on Wikipedia.
My mandalas don’t follow the oriental artistic depiction present on traditional mandalas, but they are in the square form, and the center point and radial balance of the motif are usually present. Artistic expression is uniquely mine, using the mysticism of ancient symbols (spirals, circles, sun, stars, etc.), and sometimes an old Croatian Glagolitic script and Arabic alphabet. Some of my mandalas have philosophical, metaphysical or spiritual message vowen into them.

[hr] Ovo je galerija s odabirom mojih mandala koje stvaram u većim formatima i kao minijature.
Mandala (sanskrt. krug) je izvorno budistički i hinduistički simbol, mistični dijagram koji služi pri meditaciji. Odnosi se na kružne ili kvadratne slike sa središtem, koje su nacrtane, naslikane ili modelirane. Njihova svrha je da pomognu osobi koja meditira da isključi sve ono što je izvana, da se koncentrira na ono što je prikazano unutar kruga mandale, da stvori svoj “sveti prostor” i uđe u stanje transa.
Na Zapadu je crtanje mandala popularizirao psihoanalitičar Carl Gustav Jung kao sredstvo koje stabilizira i integrira unutrašnje sebstvo.
Danas je to generički pojam koji označava bilo koji dijagram ili pravilan, radijalno simetričan geometrijski crtež, koji na simboličan ili metafizički način predstavlja poimanje univerzuma. Pročitaj više o mandalama na Wikipediji (en) te o njihovoj duhovnoj simbolici ovdje (hr).
Moje mandale ne slijede orijentalni umjetnički izraz koji se javlja na tradicionalnim mandalama, ali jesu kvadratičnog oblika te su uglavnom prisutne centralna točka i radijalna ravnoteža motiva. Likovni izraz je unikatno moj, uz uporabu drevnih mističnih simbola (spirale, kruga, sunca, zvijezde i sl.) te glagoljice i arapskog pisma. Neke od mojih mandala imaju u sebi utkanu neku filozofsku, metafizičku ili duhovnu poruku.
