Mandala...the art of sand painting
Apr 12, 2011

I was lucky enough to witness the art of sand painting by Tibet monks call Mandala. For those of you who live in the Bay Area you should make the trip to see it. It is just amazing to see how the monk painstakingly lay down tiny grains of sand onto the table to make a beautiful picture. For more info check out the Sonoma State University website http://library.sonoma.edu/about/gallery.php
