Ironically, this Kaleider Mandala Mode image was rendered from a photo
of a Mandala sand painting at the Denver Art Museum. The effect was done with
a Square Pie Kaleidoscope that had been adjusted to 24 Petals.
The pie slice was oriented to 0°, which along with having a number of Petals
that is divisible by 4, makes the results perfectly symmetrical. The Mandala
background was set to black in this case. The possible variations of a single
effect on a particular source image are vast -- another, with the effect shifted to a
different position on the source image, is shown below.
