This Mandala (original was the first Mandala painting I ever sold) It still runs as one of the most popular giclees offered here. The symbol of the lotus petal throughout is a reminder that we are all the beauty of the lotus – EVEN if/when we grow from the “muck” The beauty if still there.
In addition to the originals available and noted on the shop page, each of the mandalas can be ordered as an embellished giclee (“gee-clay”). A giclee is a print on canvas. When Uma Joy makes a giclee, she takes the print and adds 3- dimensional paint, gold leafing (when shown on the original) and/or Swarovski crystals – making the giclee half-way between an original and a print. Thus, the difference in pricing on the giclees — the more detailed the original is – the more involved the embellishment becomes.
