Making Mandalas from Fruits and Vegetables

Traditionally, a mandala is a geometric shape that symbolically represents the cosmos or the universe, or perhaps a search for unity and completeness within oneself. I always enjoy creating mandalas, and there is something particularly wholesome about making mandalas on my light box with fruits and vegetables. Taken themselves, consuming fruit and vegetables can be seen as a kind of sacrament—and these mandalas can end up on the table as part of a yummy salad or fruit dessert once the photography is done.
