COROMANDEL LIFE 2016 LATE AUTUMN / WINTER
Above and above right, a giant star mandala at Hauturu (Clark Island) off Whangamata. Note Andres is
sitting in the centre, to give an idea of the overall size.
The Google map, left, shows the proximity
Cooks Beach and Lonely Bay. The Cooks Beach
mandala boasts a geometric design – can you
see the illusion of the 3-dimensional cube?
Below, Lonely Bay, located south east of
Shakespeare Cliff, is adorned with a random
interwoven glyph pattern covering the entire length
of its sandy expanse.
Internally, the act of making the art is a zen experience. I become
extremely focused and most all else falls away.
My whole body is engaged – all my senses as well, appreciating the
experience as the experience is happening.
– Andres Amador
