This is my all time favorite mandala from a student in one of my play therapy classes. It is made from flowers. She gave the mandala photo to me and I keep it on my desk at work.
This is actually a representation of a cross made out of fresh flowers.
I always feel as if I am smelling the flowers when I look at it. It reminds me of Hawaii. I always de-stress when I look at this mandala photo.
I also will always remember this wonderful student when I look at the mandala picture. She was also an incredible photographer.
This outdoor mandala was completed by a student who truly understood what the mandala is all about. She really put her heart and soul into the mandala homework assignment.
