Everyday Objects Mandalas

Colorful Mandalas made of everyday objects such as Barbies, Lego's, books, shoes, and plastic items found throughout their home by Hillerbrand and Magsamen. Stephan Hillerbrand and Mary Magsamen are a collaborative husband and wife visual artist team based in Houston, Texas. For their latest project called "Mandalas", they have created a series of bright, organized color pallets combining stuff they have found lying around in their own creative exploration.
The word "mandala" is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean "circle," a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself, a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.
From the artists:

"In an effort to unify our home and family, we have created a series of large photographs of Mandalas where we have organized the stuff from our home such as Barbies, Lego's, books and all those crazy little plastic items into circular patterns.”
