Artist's Description

Monks putting the final touches to a sand mandala at Thyangboche Monastery, Nepal. The mandala is made for the Mani Rimdu festival which starts on the full moon of October. It is later then ritually dismantled and the sand washed into the Imja Khola river which is a tributary of the great Dudh Koshi (milk river). This is symbolic of the transient nature of things. For the monks the beauty rests in the meditative process of creation.
