I haven’t been posting a lot of new photos here recently, only because I’ve been too busy taking new ones! I’m currently enjoying the International Festival of Sacred Arts in Delhi, India, with a stunning array of music and dance, along with films, workshops, visual arts, talks, and yes…photographic opportunities! This is a Buddhist mandala under construction. The colors you see are all just colored sand, intricately laid and layered by Buddhist monks using thin metal cones. The monks will work on it throughout the festival, then wipe the sand into a pile and dump it in a nearby river. It’s a meditation, and a statement about the impermanence of all things. And it’s beautiful.
