the Mandala

The "mandala is a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional reality, used in rituals from the simple to complex to sacralize space in a variety of ways, but always to concentrate spiritual energies and provide a focus for meditation or other sacred acts. It supplies a map, a spatial orientation, a physical blueprint for a journey toward a transcendent reality."
"The dancer is a living embodiment of a sacred map that displays a path to enlightenment."

–Susan L. Schwartz, Rasa
