Moss, crab skeleton, pine cones, lichen-covered sticks, shells


The materials for this mandala were found at Marconi Beach and in the Hidden Village pine forest. There is a lot of very interesting lichen and some moss varieties that we do not see in Western Massachusetts. The sticks and pine cones were gathered on early morning dog walks on the property. The shells came from the property as well- someone collected and then discarded them behind the house.  I found the beautiful crab skeleton at Marconi Beach at the high tide line. Mark collected lovely beach rocks everywhere we went.
