Design Inspiration

My design honors whales by adorning the whale Tail with a mosaic mandala embellished with shiny gems. This represents our love and respect, and acknowledges their value to our world. Mandalas are spiritual symbols representing the universe, peace and harmony. These can help restore health and spiritual balance when used during meditation. If we have peace and harmony within ourselves, we will more likely care for our world and other creatures.
