Buddha monk draws with sand over a month Mandala (Mandara)

I use a stick-like tool like a pile to drop sand little by little, drawing a precise mandala.

It is a work that seems to be rather patient as it can not inadvertently sigh.

Details are as below.

At first there is nothing table.

I will gradually drop the sand using a metal rod.

I began making it, after a week or so.

It is not completed yet.

I made it up. There is no disorder even though it is small.

The tool you are using.

Also fine tuning fine.

It was completed in about a month from the beginning.

It was dismantled after being exhibited for about 2 months.

The sand was drained by the water.

Mandala made in honor of Dalai Lama's 70th birthday. You can see how to make sandy mandalas.

You can see the sand dropping from the movie in the up.
