An artist drizzles onto the ground the natural coloured volcanic sands from the Tenerife volcano Teide to create a sand painting such as are made every year during the celebrations of Corpus Christi in the villa of La Orotava.
In 2006, five Tibetan monks came to add a small portion of the sand carpet with their mandala, which was created on a wooden platform at one corner of the main carpet. Here is a photo taken by Jose Mesa when he went to visit the Orotava site where the monks were making their mandala in 2006.
