This is my first mandala. I painted it during the Christmas holidays 2014. At that time I just painted the mandala, the rest of the area was left untouched. Over the time I realized that I must continue to finish it. Just the mandala was kinda boring, something was missing. There have to be some extra elements. I chose fishes, which indeed match a meditative theme. The triangles form a contrast to all the curved lines. They intended to represent the self-control and purposefulness in fulfilling our dreams and desires.
