Sand Painting by Tibetan Monks

This sand painting is just amazing. The Tibetan Monks are at the university I work at doing a sand painting. It's really incredible what they are doing. They use an instrument called a chak-purr and it lets a small amount of sand out and they guide it over a table that they have drawn the outline on. The top photo is my daughter with one of the monks. They are so nice and my daughter is quite sad that they will be leaving tomorrow. They have spent many, many hours on this painting and the closing ceremony is tomorrow.
