Shiva Mandala. (video sound "on")
New Steampunk Design by Art Donovan: The Illuminated Astrolabe. 2009. This Mandala alludes to the Steampunk philosophy of the re-imagined past- simultaneously ancient and modern in it's design and configuration.
My most most complex Steampunk work to date with influences of Hinduism, Freemasonry and ancient astronomy. 72" tall x 72" wide. Solid Mahogany, Solid Brass, Glass, Spun-Filament Fiberglass, Plaster, LED + Incandescent Bulbs, Acrylic Resin, Ultra Violet Tubes + Electric Motors.

Control Box for the mandala-left and right. Independent operations for all of the different electrical units makes for a nice dramatic display when viewing. Thanks to all for taking the time to look. Best Regards, Art. Click Here to read a wonderful review.
