  Temple of life (by Prem Poorna)  
BAUDELAIRE once wrote of the forest as a temple filled with living columns. There is something of that spirit in this small mandala, encircled by an organic vaulted cloister, or a series of alcoves in which small altars bear simple flowers, with the blue sky shining in behind. Or it is like a naturally formed rose window, miraculously knit by nature from a chance conjunction of softly curving forms and fresh, jewel-bright colours.
This mandala was actually made by an Indian friend, who donated his design to this collection. The title and the background were then chosen to enhance the feeling that flows from the mandala that the sacred and the natural can never be separated; they are not two.
