Decadent Dissidence: A Mandala Study
Photographs by Lor O'Connor
"Mandalas... usually appear in situations of psychic confusion and disorientation. The archetype thereby constellated represents a pattern of order which, like a psychological 'view-finder' marked with a cross or a circle divided into four, is superimposed on the psychic chaos so that each content falls into place and the weltering confusion is held together by the protective circle."
- Carl Jung, Civilization in Transition
