Have you ever heard about mandala art?

Mandala art is made by configuring the symbols that have been used since eternity by various religions, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Shintoism and many others.

Artist Lina West uses dots to create zentangle mandala patterns on stones to create her impressive mandala art.
Lina makes her unique art by using paints of vibrant colors, a pencil, a syringe, and carefully chosen stones. After choosing the right stones, she draws big and small dots as patterns on them. Then she delicately places dots of colors by a syringe to create colorful different mandalas.

The process of her art is not easy. Each stone has more than 2,000 dots on top of them. Also, she makes 3D effect which sometimes takes 10 layers to achieve.
