First of all, it's beautiful. I love the octagonal arrangement. It calls to mind the eight directions of the compass. The eight directions of Okinawan Shorin-ryu kata. It's the Latin I'm struggling with. And I know it's not about a cross section of Rick Santorum's phallus. But that's all my rusty Latin will muster. Sorry. I love it, though.

Vigatorus means, vigorous...stout...

and Sanatorus...sorta medical...i was implying that this was a healing mandala.

imagine if men could forego the viagra, and medidate themselves into uh...health.

Cat!! You have a new avatar!!

Oh, and I love the mandala. They are incredibly healing, and even women have phallic healing that must take place in their psyches -- so its not just for men! :)

So many places to go here but let's leave it at this: "Catnapping, just how many men are you familiar with? There's no medication in MY cabinet!" :D

Okay, I learned about mandala. At least I was on the right track with Shorin-ryu. That portion near the center with the blue looks very similar to the patches of most Shorin-ryu styles. Thanks for being patient with me.

I only meant it as a mandala jokingly. I just wanted an excuse to draw naughty bits.

We have a picture like that made out of phalluses taken at the Penis Museum in Iceland. Not as colorful of course, but quite interesting :)

Those are birds? I must go back and look again.

Were my mother to chance across something like this, and were she in an allegorical mood (neither is extremeley likely, but hey), she might opine your image to be significant of men's general ability to aim their excreta (the central object being hte usual receptacle for that sort of routine daily thing). The carpeted bathroom was an idea that didn't last long in a house full of males.
