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.
