Artist's Description

I sat with these Tibetan monks at Langmusi for nearly an hour as they made and painted clay tiles with Tsongkapa, the founder of the Gelugpa sect of Buddhism. First they pounded the clay then squished it into tile molds before letting it dry and painting it with gold paint. The guy in this photo is the one i talked to most as he spoke some Chinese (I speak little/no Tibetan). This area is a Tibetan area on the border of the Chinese provinces of Gansu and Sichuan. Actually I guess now Tibet is also a province of China. Hooray for the motherland…
