The design of this mural features mandalas (symbolic diagrams of the cosmos) in a dimensional progression from 1-5, beginning with the 1st dimension and moving on the the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th in order.  The design also features ancient symbols called trigrams–markings arranged in three rows, with each marking unique to a specfic universal concept–that correspond and progress with the dimensions.

Dimensions and Trigrams was part of a grassroots experimental program artist Andrew Severns had created with Lisa Boyles to inspire “Harmony through Geometry.”  Severns theorized that the innate order of geometrical shapes, arranged in meaningful patterns with logical color schemes, can improve communities’ sense of well-being, beautify neighborhoods, and inspire productive communication.
