Meditate on these beautiful and deeply spiritual patterns of Celtic artwork – a culture whose beliefs and traditions have passed down through many legends.
Celtic Mandalas will help to make the deeply spiritual symbolism of Celtic artwork more accessible and potentially life-enriching for you, by presenting meaningful combinations of key Celtic patterns and motifs in 32 attractive and thought-provoking mandalas for you to colour in.
The beliefs and traditions of the Celts have been passed down to us through many legends, but are perhaps best preserved and depicted in symbolic artwork. Celtic designs and motifs can provide wonderful insight into Celtic spirituality. A short introduction, illustrated in colour, explains some of the fundamentals of Celtic symbolism. This not only gives you deeper insight into ancient Celtic ways but will also help you to get the most from the guided meditations given with the mandalas themselves. The designs include the Endless Knot, the Salmon of Wisdom, the Tree of Life and the Seven Spirals. At the back of the book is a visual directory of Celtic iconography in full colour.
