Lamas Make Mandala Sand Painting At Youning Temple

HUZHU COUNTY, CHINA - NOVEMBER 1: (CHINA OUT) A lama makes a mandala sand painting, which will be used for an enshrining ceremony at the Youning Temple on November 1, 2009 in Huzhou County of Qinghai Province, China. Mandala sand painting, known as dul-tson-kyil-khor in Tibetan, which literally means 'mandala of colored powders', is a unique art of Tibetan Buddhism. The grains of sand are laid on a flat platform with special tools, forming iconography including geometric shapes and spiritual symbols, resulting in a work of art that usually takes a monk a couple of weeks or months to finish.
