PROVENANCE: Private Collection, Paris The mandala, Hindu in origin, is a graphic depiction of the spiritual universe and its myriad realms and deities. Much later, first in Tibet and China then Japan, the mandala was adopted as a powerful religious icon among practitioners of Esoteric Buddhism. In Japan, the mandala rose to great prominence as a 'living entity', one that ensured the efficacy of esoteric rituals performed in its presence.
