Zen Prints

The word ‘mandala’ is Sanskrit for ‘circle’ and is a spiritual symbol that represents all aspects of life. The beauty of the geometric patterns is that each one is completely unique and based of the creator’s life. They’re often used for meditation and achieving a feeling of wholeness, so they're perfect for bringing maximum zen vibes into your home.
