According to psychologist Carl Jung, the pictures that patients of mental disease draw becomes a mandala when they are recovering. The mandala is an archetypal image seen all over the world; it is thought to be a shape of healing.
When attempting to assist disaster-stricken areas, local people were very pleased with village planning that was shaped with mandalas. These plans healed people like Jung's mandala.
