The ancient syllable OM or AUM is the shortest of the Mantras and in the Indian tradition it is a word suggestive of God.Repetition of OM enables one to maintain mental and emotional calmness , overcome obstacles and enable understanding.Saying "OM" is actually a form of meditation.
I made this card for a dear friend. I wanted to make a simple OM symbol and fill it Szalonaisa style, you can see one of her work here where she has used such tiny elements to fill up the animal figures. I rolled the strips around a old refill to make small circles. I have lost count of the hours it took me to finish this one. I almost at one point believed it would never end.But it looks so beautiful as if made with tiny beads. Needless to say it looks better than it does in the pictures.
Thanks for stopping by, Have a creative day.
Here's another OM I made on request. Glad it also turned out well.
