Besides being a great pierced pattern, this shade is inspired by Hindu and Buddhist patterns called a Mandal and the Lotus or Padma flower.
At its most basic form, a Mandal is a circular pattern that exhibits radial balance or symmetry. In Hinduism and Buddhism, mandalas are used to focus the attention of practitioners and to establish a sacred space to aid in meditation.
The Lotus is an ancient symbol in Asian culture. It is said to symbolize creation, cosmic renewal, and purity. The lotus flower is symbolic of the seventh primary chakra according to tantric yoga traditions.
