Paul Heussenstamm (American, b. 1949)
The vibrant sacred art of Paul Heussenstamm incorporates tenets from many religious traditions, among them Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity. His signature motif is the mandala, which, for him, “has opened the doorway into the symbolic language of the soul.” Mandalas, ancient patterns that are typically circular and geometric in form, often represent wholeness or unified energy. In Mandala World, a circular arrangement of circular mandalas offers a 1,000-piece puzzle that might inspire meditation, calm, and introspection.
