3D Looking Mandala Drawings

00-Baz-Furnell-3D-Looking-Mandala-Drawings-www-designstack-co
The ancient form of art, Mandala drawings, given the illusion of a third dimension.
Mandala, translated from Sanskrit means "Circle", with all of the symbology that comes and is attached to the shape.  The practice is thought to have started in the 4th century in countries like: Tibet, India, Nepal, China, Japan, Bhutan.  Artist Baz Furnell, takes this century old practice and gives it this beautiful spin.  I have included WIPs, so that you can see some of the intermediate steps, in these amazingly detailed pieces of art.
