It started with this table.

And ended with this table.

Beginning February 26, 2001,
The Ven. Tenzin Thutop and the Ven. Tenzin Deshek,
Two Buddhist monks from the Namgyal Monastery in Ithaca, New York
Will construct a five-and-a-half foot Medicine Buddha sand mandala
I the Ackland's Yager Gallery of Asian Art.

This process will conclude by March 21,
Though the mandala will continue to be on display through June 8, 2001.

On that day, the monks will dismantle the mandala and
Deposit the sand in a body of water.

This process symbolizes the transience of life
And the ideal of nonattachment to the material world.
