Monks at Work

I got the opportunity to photograph an event at the Crow Collection of Asian Art. It was called the Mystical Arts of Tibet. Seven Monks spent the week in the museum creating a sand mandala. After they finished, it took a week,they collected the sand( to symbolize the impermanence of all that exists) and dispersed it in Turtle Creek, in Dallas. They do this so the mandala's healing energy can be sent to the world.
