Hyperbolic Tessellation Mandalas

In July 2009 I visited the MC Escher exhibit at the Portland Art Museum (Oregon). Seeing MC Escher’s Circle Limit IV (Angels & Demons) blew me away. However, I was even more fascinated by the graph system he used to help him create it. After a few months of research I was able to create my own graph. As with the Symmetry Mandalas, I start with a simple pattern idea, tessellate it around the hyperbolic plan which often generates at least two new patterns.

What is a Mandala?

"The Mandala is Us, a reflection of our Inner Soul, our Inner Beauty, and our Inner Knowingness. It represents our connection to Source, to Love; it represents our perfection as spiritual beings.

As part of our journey of self discovery in human form, we strive to raise our vibration such that this Inner Experience fully expresses itself in our everyday outer world.

The mandala provides the map, like a spiritual GPS, guiding us along the way."

-- Maiah
