Dot Painting originated from Aboriginal Australia. And Mandala is a Sanskrit word that means the Universe. Learn to blend these two art forms together in a meditative and therapeutic way. The mandalas have been practiced as a meditative art form since ancient times. A mandala drawing is a circular symmetrical design with repetitions of patterns which creates an illusion of motion. It has a central focal point around which the design revolves thus symbolizing the cosmos. A Dot Painting is done by drawing dots of various sizes with shades of colors to create shapes and patterns.
