Finished mandala.

29 July to 2 August 2015

Over five days, a group of Tibetan Buddhist Monks visiting from monasteries in India will create a mandala in the Gallery as part of the Sacred Footsteps Tour 2015. The exact design of the mandala, proportions and use of colours, are laid down in ancient Buddhist text and memorised by the monks. On the final day, the completed mandala is then swept away by the monks during a special dissolution ceremony.
