Seen these on eBay listed as Chinese throws, tablecloths, wall hangings, needlework, blankets and so I bid on one for $5.00 and won. It arrived today and is none of the above. "In various spiritual traditions, mandalas are made for focusing attention, as a spiritual teaching tool, and this seems to be a mandala used as an aid to meditation; Buddhism and Hinduism. Just like Buddhism monks with sand paintings of mandalas, they use geometric patterns that represents the cosmos." Item is for religious meditation, not coffee and donuts.
