Art Card: The Zenith Mandala
This 5x7 folded cards shows a kaleidoscopic art design inspired by the San Antonio de Padua Convent, located in Izamal, Mexico. Izamal is a small city in the Mexican state of Yucatan, in southern Mexico. It is known in as the Yellow City as most of its buildings are painted yellow and the City of Hills that actually are the remains of ancient temple pyramids.
When the Spaniards conquered Izamal, they destroyed the major Maya temple, the Ppapp-Hol-Chac pyramid, and in 1533 began to build from its stones one of the first monasteries in the western hemisphere. Work on the San Antonio de Padua Convent was finished in 1561.
The mandala is form by an angled photo of the convent right outside the black bars that protect its perimeter.
