Mandala painting is the fastest growing area of popular art. Suddenly mandalas are everywhere: designer clothes, albums cover art, tattoos, and spiritual book covers, as well as in modern and prehistoric temples throughout the world. The subject of discussion by Deepak Chopra, Pema Chodron, Eckhart Tolle, the Dalai Lama, and numerous other spiritual leaders, this most ancient art form is resurfacing in our time in response to the modern quest for spiritual meaning. "Mandala Masterworks" collects the best examples of this emerging phenomenon in a luxury oversized format. The first edition in an annual series showcasing New Age art, "Mandala Masterworks" features an introduction by Paul Heussenstamm, the world-renowned master of mandala painting.
