Visionary Stencil Art: StarWheels by AYA

On Christmas day preceding the New Year 1985, my present from Spirit was a vision: I felt "seeded" to create a line of paintings, in the specific format of "mandalas", that would be vibrational templates to facilitate the great transformations that human consciousness is currently exploring.
