Mandalas designs contain themes and patterns taken from geometry, nature and folk art. Mandalas have been found on the walls of prehistoric caves, in ancient tapestries and stained glass windows and in the artistic expression of people all over the world. Mandalas represent wholeness and life. Made up of simple elements, yet capable of becoming marvellously complex, they fascinate children and adults alike. And mandala patterns invite colour - something children are only too happy to provide! Colouring mandalas encourages the calm and quiet teachers recognise as vital to children's development and concentration. Many teachers use mandalas as an activity for centring and refreshing their pupils or to begin or end classes. Parents can use mandala colouring books to give their children something creative to do at home or when travelling. Adults benefit from mandalas too, both indirectly when their children are quietly colouring and directly when drawing or colouring their own mandalas. The 46 original designs in HORSE MANDALAS colouring book bring together the inspiration of horses - their beautiful lines, thrilling movement and sense of freedom - with the centring, aesthetic and timeless beauty of mandalas. Author, illustrator and horse trainer, Miriam Nieuwe Weme, created these patterns using images of horses and the traditional rotational symmetry of the mandala design. Some of the horse mandalas are complex and intricate, others are simpler, awaiting the addition of reader's own embellishments and creativity. Miriam Weme has loved horses since she was a little girl. Creating the mandalas featured in this book was a profoundly comforting and inspirational experience for her, and she hopes readers/artists interacting with the book will have the same experience as they colour them in and make them their own. Whether horse enthusiast, budding artist, adult or child, this colouring and design book gives readers an opportunity to bring out coloured pencils and paints and let these unique mandalas take them on a wonderful journey!
