Mandalas presumably depict and facilitate a centering of psychic energy. But “uncenteredness” may also play a positive role in our living of our lives, because it is often necessary to vitality and meaning. Many of the works in this exhibition feature snakes that are uncentered within the mandalas. The tension between snakes and mandalas, can, should be, and often is creative. Explore the relationship and symbolism between the snake and the mandala.
