16-39: For Whom the Bell Tolls Mandala

For Whom the Bell Tolls Mandala by Maureen Frank

Download Mandala of the Week #39

Inspired by yesterday’s Lily of the Valley MotD, I created this light and airy mandala to color. Even without colors, it feels fun and delightful.

From GardenGuides.com about this flower, they state:

Lily of the valley has had many meanings over the centuries. Its small stature and shade-loving disposition have made it a natural symbol of humility. The sweet-smelling white flowers have been associated with the traditional feminine virtues of chastity, purity and sweetness. In the Victorian language of flowers, lily of the valley meant “return of happiness.” Christians have handed down the legend of Eve’s tears, which holds that when the biblical Eve wept after her expulsion from the Garden of Eden, the tears turned into lilies of the valley. The plants are sometimes also associated with the purity and chastity of the Virgin Mary.

This Week…

Picking up on the concept of humility and the way these little individual blossoms easily coexist, we too can allow ourselves to be full-out while peacefully coexisting with others. Even in little ways we can strive for excellence while supporting other people on their own paths to excellence.

Happy Coloring!

joyfully,

Maureen
