Tibetan monks will create a sand mandala like the one above in Atlanta beginning Tuesday, October 16 until destruction on the 23rd. Whereas most mosaics may use several hundred carefully cut pieces, the 5′ x 5′ sand mandalas use millions of grains of colored sand. The good news is that the grains don’t need individual gluing. The bad news is that this exacting work is back-breaking, and takes three to five days to complete. And, you know, you can’t hang it in a gallery. The event is free and open to the public, and more information is available here. His Holiness will speak free to the public on Monday, October 22 at Centennial Park.
One thought on “Tibetan Mosaic”
the link works. I think I know what was wrong. This mandela is great!. I love it. I am glad I am connected to you again. Now I can keep up with you work. We did mandelas at the Art League one year as a special program. It was oh so spiritual! I have a video tape of it. there were some really interesting personal mandelas.
