Mandala Flower of Life Mandala Cotton Pendulum Cloth

Spoken Passion $13.00

This is a 12 inch by 12 inch hemmed, professionally-printed cotton cloth printed in rich hues of beige and brown with the flower of life drawing.  

This sacred geometry flower mandala is perfect for reading cards as a tarot cloth, as an altar cloth.  

The Flower of Life is an example of sacred geometric designs.  Essentially, it is comprised of same size circles that overlap each other so that each side of the circle dived by the overlapping circle is the same radius.  There are different kinds of geometric flower sacred patterns.  Some form a bowed triangle in the center of where the circles overlap.  

A Flower of Life pattern decoration with seven or 19 overlapping circles shows up in numerous artifacts from the 6th or 7th century BCE forward in Roman art, Islamic art and in Gothic art.  The oldest example is on display in the Louvre in Paris.  It is from the threshold of a palace that belonged to the King of Assyria. 

The design wasn't known as the Flower of Life though until our more recent New Age and now shows up on metaphysical objects, spiritual art, meditation mandalas, quilts, architecture, clothing, furnishings, tile, jewelry and tattoos.  There is an Alpine folk art design that is the same thing known as the Sun of the Alps.  Later, the English used the symbol on their buildings to keep witches out.  Leonardo da Vinci, fascinated by sacred geometry symbols, wrote about the 7 overlapping circle design at great length.

Islamic art uses grids of overlapping circles for for the design of stars and hexagons.  It is called a girih.  The final art looks more like interwoven strips or straps than overlapping circles.
