Venice Mandala

Venice Mandala

This work was inspired and adapted from the "Voynich Manuscript," a 15th century codex hand-written in an unknown writing system, which may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance.  The mystery of the meaning and origin of the manuscript has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript the subject of novels and speculation.

The mandala (literally "circle" in Sanskrit) is a metaphysical representation of the universe.

While typically associated with Hinduism and Buddhism, mandalas also feature prominently with deep symbolic meaning in Christian art and motifs, as exemplified by the Celtic cross, the rosary, rose windows, the halo, communion wafers, the crown of thorns.

This composition (along with its complement, Florence Mandala) is inspired by the delicate Florentine and Venetian lacework of the late renaissance where the desire for the enrichment of ordinary features manifested itself in embroideries of silk with gold or silver threads.

Offered in precision handcraft gold leaf, silver leaf, or white framing.
