Meditative Mandalas by Rafael Anteby – Blooming with Natural Vibrance
Enchanting and spiritually inspiring, the mandala represents the universe in both Hinduism and Buddhism as a ritual symbol. Intricate geometric patterns, the mandala is a microcosm of the universe that “represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically.”*
According to the Ancient History Encyclopedia, “A mandala can be defined in two ways: externally as a schematic visual representation of the universe and internally as a guide for several psychophysical practices that take place in many Asian traditions, including meditation.”*
Artist Rafael Anteby has taken this ancient art to the next level of spirituality and meditation and is sharing this with the public. The co-founder of Bullets4Peace is continuing his path of enlightenment with mandalas which are said to be among “the most ancient art form created by human beings.”*
Anteby’s mandalas incorporate minerals such as Mojavi Desert yellow sand, Ramon Mine purple and red sand, Hawaiian green sand, Zion Canyon Yellow River sand, 23-karat gold, acrylic, Ficus tree sap and using adhesive over canvas.
The exhibition opened on Sunday, June 4 with an introduction and chanting ceremony by his holiness Adzom Lama Jurmey Jamtso Rinpoche.
The exhibition will run through July 1, 2017. The exhibition is located in the heart of the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles, California at 929 East Second Street, Unit 103, entrance on Vignes Street.
