Paul Heussenstamm (American, b. 1949)
Paul Heussenstamm’s vibrant sacred art incorporates principles of many religious traditions, among them Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity. Heussenstamm grew up in a highly creative, spiritual environment that helped form the pattern of his life and work. His signature motif is the mandala, a mystic symbol that for him, “has opened the doorway into the symbolic language of the soul.” Mandalas, which are typically circular and geometric in form, often represent wholeness or unified energy. Mandalas have played a role in Eastern spiritual development for centuries and are widely favored as meditational focal points because of their balancing and calming effects.
My first Mandala puzzle. Really fun to put together!
A toughy, but so rewarding to finish. Can't beat Pomegranate puzzles for quality.
Putting the puzzle was a challenge but the end result was well worth it. The tapestry picture is beautiful and will be a much noticed conversation piece on my wall. Thank you!!!
This is one of my favorite mandala-style jigsaw puzzles and I've put it together numerous times. Although the pattern appears repetitious and difficult, the pieces and design are unique enough to figure out the location for a given section.
Great puzzle! Colorful and a good challenge!
