As part of a tour put on by an organization called The Mystical Arts of Tibet, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks from India recently visited the Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas, Texas.
They were there for a weeklong residency during which they constructed this magnificent Tantric Buddhist mandala sandpainting.
