Fire Claw Mandala Stone

Fire Claw Mandala Stone
I love the enneagram. I often ask people what number they are to help me better understand who they are and what motivates them. It's a special interest of mine.
The first time I met an autistic friend of mine, I didn't need to ask her what her number was. She was an eight, through and through. Her energy and her spirit emanated from her core and radiated like flames of a phoenix. 
My intention was to capture the core of her being that radiated from her center, portraying self-confidence and assertiveness while taming the wild beast inside that is her ego, which can overshadow everything.
