what are thw words around the edge of the surface? is that Latin???

Donovan Design said...

Yes. It is an ancient, Latin prayer- "Veni, Sancti Spiritu". ( imploring the Holy Spirit for inspiration.) The other symbols in the Mandala are taken from Judeism, Buddism, Sufism, Freemasonry, and ancient Egyptian and Celtic designs. Thank you very much for noticing. Art

Thanks for sharing. Keep coming back, Sanserif77.

Anyway, this would be a great focus in a hall or entryway - Great illumination with a warm glow.
