Prior to 2005 I had created to King Tut inspired mandalas. By 2005 I wanted to create another one. This one is my interpretation of a amulet/necklace worn by King Tut and on display at the Cairo Museum. The center scarab in this case represents Tut being carried off to the afterlife in a boat. The cobras and other scarabs are there to protect him on his journey.
The Music Hall Mandala came about from a doodle meditation session. When I first looked down at the paper, I saw the center piece in my mind’s eye and just started drawing what I saw. Then the rest just evolved on its own…with each line drawn seeming to inspire the next line.
