Think Inside the Ox
“Think Inside the Ox” is a visual representation of the life force that creates worlds. This powerful energy thrives in all animals and humans, emanating from the heart center, pulsing through and beyond the body, and connecting us with all other radiant beings.
The mandala (circle of life) is the centerpiece of this Ox design, strategically placed at the heart. It was created specifically for the Ox and is printed on hundreds of paper puzzle pieces, decoupaged together to create the final look.
This mandala design illustrates the movement of radiant energy from the heart throughout the body and beyond. Animals, like the Ox, are naturally tuned into this force, but human habits and conditioning often interfere with our ability to access it. Remembering how to tap into this flow strengthens us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, dramatically improving our daily lives. “Think Inside the Ox” to reconnect to your own infinite power.
Think Inside the Ox was awarded First Place by our panel of Stampede Judges, and was purchased at The Year of the Ox gala for $3,750.
About the Artist
In 2007, Dana was suddenly given deeper access to her inner world through art. The heavens opened and gifted her a limitless supply of lines, symbols and colors that she uses to create mandalas. Within each one, there are coded messages for the viewer, from general awareness to individual concerns.
The mandala (or circle) is the origin of life. Its center represents the eye of the Creator, and gently directs us to the infinite space within. The mandalas remind us that behind our physical facades, we’re each our own perfect, beautiful pattern, exquisitely individual, yet connected in the stillness as One. All wisdom exists here, and nothing of true value can be born from any other vantage point.
