The Mandala Project

The Hammer Museum, in collaboration with Ari Bhöd will host a 10 day ceremony, starting Oct. 26th, where visiting Tibetian monks will use millions of grains of colored sand to create a "sacred painting, following precise and ancient instructions passed down over thousands of years". At the mandala's completion on Nov. 7th, the swept up sand will be immediately taken to the Pacific Ocean for dispersal among the waves during a public procession.

"The mandala painting represents boundless compassion, purity and clarity." ~Hammer
