These Mandalas are created using the same type of spherical projection technique that is used to create the Strange Planets (See StrangePlanets.com) .
These are all created by Julian using photographs he took. What Totem would YOU pick for a Mandala of yourself?
Eric's favorite hat was the Totem Object for his Mandala.
Jeremy's Totem Object was an LED clock chip that he designed and built.
Eso's Totem Object was a metal dragon that she hand painted. In the Mandala if feels like an illustration.
For her totem, Gwen chose a sparkling red feather, symbolic of her creative spirit.
TQ chose his sticker covered laptop for his Totem and Meredyth chose the satchel which she is never without.
This is one of the more iconic images from my book The People of Burning Man. It was a natural for turning into a Mandala.
