The Sand Mandala

Please view details in large size,really great^^

 

The Sand Mandala is a Tibetan Buddhist tradition involving the creation and destruction of mandalas made from colored sand. A sand mandala is ritualistically destroyed once it has been completed and its accompanying ceremonies and viewing are finished to symbolize the Buddhist doctrinal belief in the transitory nature of material life.

 

This one is made in Hong Kong,it was really made of sand ,it made by about 7 monks from Tibetan and need 1 week to finish it^^
