Andrew Russell | Tribune-Review - Khenpo Choephel, a buddhist monk from Tibet rings a bell as he wipes away the sand from a mandala, or colored sand painting at The Spinning Plate Gallery in Friendship, Saturday, as part of a dissolution ceremony. The intricate piece has been in progress at the space since Sunday, and after the dissolution, the sand was poured out into the Ohio river as part of the extended ceremony. Mandala means 'circle' or 'sacred space' in Sanskrit and this particular mandala includes elements symbolizing the deity Chenrizig, who embodies the Buddha's loving-kindness and compassion.
