This master quality Mandala which is handpainted by using 24-carat gold with an orange background. Kalachakra mandalas are one of the most intricate and complex of all mandala designs. The one feature that makes this piece of artwork distinctive from all other mandala designs is that: the Kalachakra is required to have an intricate interpretation of all 722 deities housed in their own geometric structures. Each detailed structure, in turn, must correspond with a specific meaning in the long list of Buddhist language symbols. This Mandala symbolizes individual and world peace and helps to restore physical and mental balance.
Kalachakra mandalas are highly ornamental, but its attraction lies in how the creating artist can interpret all the necessary dogma of the Kalachakra text into a very limited space. Often, in sand mandala interpretations, a Kalachakra mandala can take weeks (or months) to complete. A painting with the same design has to have an artist with a painstaking eye for detail. Very, very careful hands are essential in depicting that much Buddhist religious symbols.
