Shatkona Mandala Garden, a year long project designed and produced for A Quinta Da Lage: A regenerative agricultural farm located in southwest Portugal. Shatkona refers to the hexagram, two interlocking triangles that form a six pointed star. This sacred geometrical symbol represents the union of opposites, in this case Shiva (the fire element) and Shakti (the water element), the masculine energy and the feminine energy, together forming the origin of life. The symbol also speaks to Anahata, where the lower three chakras and the higher three chakras meet at the heart chakra, the place of "unstruck sound." It also functions as a bridging agent between the wild oak forest and the cultivated/cultured human made landscape.
A healing gesture; the garden is comprised of many perennial medicinal herbs and flowers, creating an medicinal sanctuary for visitors, residents and many other beings alike.
The photographs presented are process photos from the beginning in Aug 2020 - Aug 2021.
A special thank you to the many Beings, hearts and hands that helped along the way to develop the garden and to those who will carry it forward!
