"Mandala Dust"

by funkyporchini

This very fine sand was part of a Beautiful sand mandala that some visiting Buddhist monks created over about a week, In Byron Bay, 2004. I documented the whole process and at the end of the ceremony most of the sand was scraped up and thrown into the sea. A few little packets were made up for people to take home. At normal vision the dust looks grey, but with a Macro lens , ( 60mm) the dust comes alive again with a kaleidescope of colour…
