The Sri Yantra mandala at the center of this painting by John Simpkins is a tool to defeat negativity and instill well-being. Its intersecting triangles represent the merging of the physical with the spiritual. Simpkins has positioned it within an owl perched atop his beloved poodle Phoebe—two other resources for connection with the mysteries of the cosmos. In putting together this 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle, the highly detailed and enlivening composure may lead you to discover the power of meditation.
