Chartres Labyrinth in Blue – 1 of a Series of 6 Mandala Pictures on Silk

The mandala pictured here is one of a series of 6 silk pictures currently sold through Silk & Art . Its measurements are 50cm x 50cm x 4cm. A digital photo is taken of my original silk painting and the image is then printed onto satin silk, the same quality I paint my original silk mandalas on. These silk images are then carefully hand-embellished with gold gutta to give them a real touch of authenticity with a look and feel identical to the original. When dry, the image is then hand-stretched over a sturdy artist’s canvas to make it 3-D and also to give the front surface great stability. A woven designer label is attached to the bottom right-hand edge.

The great advantage of these quality prints is that they are extremely light resistant and can be dabbed clean when splashed. All inks used in the printing process are non-toxic.

These beautiful mandalas can be displayed as an enhancement to your living or work space in any way you choose. They pictures are timeless and universal in their application and will inspire you with their uplifting energy.
