Mandala: Reflective Pools of Wisdom

by Milo Davis

Mandala: Reflective Pools of Wisdom was created by participants at the Atlantic Pain Conference held in Fredericton, NB, in 2013 as a core component of an experiential art-and-healing event. Miro Davis, a former artist-in-residence, conceived of and facilitated the project.

Details of the work

  • The etched copper trees have milagros leaves. (Milagros is a tradition in Spanish culture where an injured/harmed part of the body is represented and worn as a charm to bring healing. Milagro translates as "miracle".)
  • The mosaic mirrors represent how one sees the world.
  • The central ceramic cups represent pools of wisdom.

The Mandala is permanently housed in the Dalhousie Medical School in Saint John, New Brunswick.
