This application should be interesting for people who are fond of drawing, and those who, in between work, take a pencil or pen in hand and begin to draw various figures on paper without thinking about their meaning at all.
Simetria will help you to abstract yourself from your daily routine, relax your mind and at the same time do something truly beautiful.

Let’s be honest, mandala drawing has never been the main idea behind this.
