Photo: Echoes of Tibet

Posted: Monday, October 04, 2004

Rebecca Smith, a board member of the Friends of the Alaska State Museum, helps carry two "dung-chen," the long horns of the Tibetan Buddhist monks, as they paraded Sunday to the Gold Creek bridge over Willoughby Avenue. The procession ended with the monks' dispursing of a mandala sand painting's remnants as part of a deconstruction ceremony. Their visit was sponsored by the Juneau Arts and Humanties Council. The monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, are on a world tour called "The Mystical Arts of Tibet." They have been working with high school students and giving performances and blessings - as well as working on the mandala at the Alaska State Museum.
