An artist creates a sand mandala at a gallery in Lhasa city, Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region, Oct 24, 2016. Mandala, an exquisite religious art of Tibetan Buddhism, has been well preserved since it was first introduced to Tibet from India. Mandala is finished after a variety of crafting, including hand painting, copper casting, sand laying, wood carving, and hand embroidering. Balanced and symmetric, it alternates between diamond and circular shapes, and has a gorgeous sparkle thanks to the use of multicolored sands as the major pigments.[Photo/China News Service]
