Mandala Making

New Year's Day 2019

Thérèse sends her greetings of peace and healing out into the world in the form of a beach mandala. The old Norse god Aegir was on her side as he arranged low tide for mid afternoon. Thérèse constructed it to the east of the River Nairn, with the help of some hardy friends, in the face of a cold north wind. Started at 11am it took 4hrs to make and measured 15m across.
