Day Two


Photos from the second day

The Sand Mandala at the end of day 2.

View of the monks pouring sand from traditional metal funnels called chak-pur. Each monk holds a chak-pur in one hand, while running a metal rod on its grated surface; the vibration causes the sands to flow like liquid.

Webcam pictures at approximately 11 am, 12 noon, 2 pm, and after work ended at 4 pm. The white in the last photo is a reflection on the plexiglass cover that protects the painting overnight.
