I love studying the patterns in tree bark. Cedar is especially beautiful. I know it has different healing qualities, and what doesn't smell more heavenly than a cedar chest? Ahhhh...
When I created this mandala, the faces of eleven bears appeared around the perimeter of the circle.Bears are about wisdom and intuition; and, during these darker inner months of winter, seems an appropriate symbol to appear in a mandala.. Oh yes, and the number 11 is also about intuition, so we have come full circle!
For those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere..how are you enjoying these dark days of winter so far?
