Mandala means "circle" in Sanskrit. They can symbolize the universe, the natural perfection in nature, and universal harmony. Tibetan Buddhist monks create their traditional Mandalas with colored sand. I create my Mandalas with light. A technique involving lights, camera, photoshop for post production, and my trusty rusty tripod. All the images on this website are the copyright of Terry Long, who produced them.

When on my travels, I like to visit buildings that have interesting fan vaulted ceilings, mostly in houses of worship. Sherborne Abbey in England is a good example. There is an amazing sensation when first looking up to see the ceiling from the center of the building. The same feeling can be had when looking up into a large tall tree. I try to create this sensation in some of my mandalas, including this one.
