Where is Tibet? How do I introduce an "unknown culture," especially one that is vanishing in the wake of political upheaval, to my students?
Use this information as a
jumping-off point to do further research, to look for more images, and to give students ideas
for questions they might ask gallery staff, or the monks who are creating the sand mandala.
