Ahhh! Love these colorful, textural, modern, geometric, traditional, cultural fabulous Ojos de Dios Yarn Mandalas. Created by Jay Mohler, his Etsy store is filled with such wonderful patterns. Wouldn’t this look so awesome in a modern home? Like a bunch of them on a wall. One leaning on a shelf? So many cool spots for them, we think. What Jay has to say:
“I’ve been making Ojos de Dios ever since after seeing such yarn and stick mandalas in 1966, in almost the exact form, made by both Huicholi natives of Mexico, and monks from Tibet. Later I made many Ojos de Dios (Spanish for Eyes of God) in a Navajo 8-sided design, when “ojos” were a popular folk art in the 1970′s American Southwest. Much more recently I’ve mostly made 12-sided Ojos de Dios, which I believe can represent a whole panorama of spiritual cosmologies ….. although for myself, I create these for artistic satisfaction rather than as any sort of spiritual talisman.” You can buy them here. But if the price is too steep, he sells DIY kits, too!
