Jeweled Mandala Hubcap
From the Designer: "I found my fascination with Hubcaps years ago when I first started illustrating Mandalas. Some of the hubcaps that you find are perfect examples of the simplest of Mandala’s geometric patterns and spiritual circular shape. Choose to work with an exciting Hubcap that inspires you, a simple one or one with fabulous layers and a fantastic patterned design."
