Voronoi Mandalas

SciPy has tools for creating Voronoi tessellations. Besides the obvious data science applications, you can use them to make pretty art like this:
The above was generated by this code:

I started with Carlos Focil's mandalapy code, modifying the parameters until I had a design I liked. I decided to make the Voronoi diagram show both points and vertices, and I gave it an equal aspect ratio. Carlos' mandalapy code is a port of Antonio Sánchez Chinchón's inspiring work drawing mandalas with R, using the deldir library to plot Voronoi tesselations.
