"Embracing the Cycle of Life: Exploring the Round Symbolism Across Cultures and Time" In the mystical land of Bhaktapur, Nepal, Asia, a mesmerizing Wheel of Life (wheel of Samsara) spins endlessly at Kopan monastery. Its intricate mandala design reflects the eternal cycle of existence. Journeying back to 1845, we find ourselves aboard HMS Erebus and HMS Terror as they embark on an ill-fated expedition. Little did they know that their path would lead them into uncharted territories and towards a round destiny filled with mystery. Delving deeper into Nepalese artistry, a Tibetan thangka in Bhaktapur captivates our senses with its vibrant colors and circular mandala. It serves as a spiritual guide through life's cosmic journey. Unveiling an intriguing relic from medieval times, we encounter the peculiar urine wheel—a curious contraption used for diagnosing ailments based on one's bodily fluids. A reminder that even in ancient times, circles held significance in understanding life's complexities. Shifting gears to lighter fare, Peter the Cat by Louis Wain brings joy with his whimsical illustrations featuring round characters who enchant readers young and old alike. Returning once more to Kopan monastery in Bhaktapur, Nepal, Asia; we discover Green Tara—a Buddhist symbol representing prosperity—radiating her benevolent energy within a circular frame. Her presence reminds us that abundance can be found when we embrace life's cyclical nature. Across continents lies Santa Catalina Island's Bay of Avalon in California. Here nature paints its own masterpiece upon this round canvas—an idyllic sanctuary where tranquility meets breathtaking beauty. Honoring one of music history's legends is New York City's Strawberry Fields Memorial—the Imagine Mosaic dedicated to John Lennon. This circular tribute invites visitors to reflect on peace while celebrating his timeless legacy. Amidst these tales stands Captain Francis Crozier, a brave soul aboard HMS Terror in 1845.
