This design is part of my early Egyptian collection of mandala designs. The lotus or water lily is indigenous to Egypt. It is a symbol of the sun and creation. It is also considered the symbol of Upper Egypt, with the papyrus plant being the symbol of Lower Egypt.

Mandala Message: “Let me open my heart to all the possibilities. Then let me make it so.”

In 1999 on a trip to Egypt, I began drawing my first mandalas. Throughout the region, I saw amazing patterns on almost every site we visited. My analytical mind loved the geometry of the Islamic and Egyptian art. My heart & soul loved their beauty & symmetry. After I returned, I saw patterns in everything around me. I translate these into mandalas. In 2000 I added meditation to the process so that I could fully explore their metaphysical natures while guiding me on my own spiritual journey.
