A mandala, or "wheel of life" is used for ritual ceremonies.
It has a geometric pattern that's depicting the cosmos.
A Mandala symbolizes the quest for inner peace and mental stability.
Medication is at odds with this idea.

the naive looks of this mandala shows how easily we ignore the fact that pills are not as innocent as they seem to be.
