The work-in-progress can be viewed daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be a special ceremony on Sunday around 9 a.m. to begin the work, and another around 9 a.m. on July 21. ("The monks kind of operate on their own time," said Juliana Broek, who is helping to organize the event.) At 2 p.m. July 21, the mandala will be dismantled and taken to the Wisconsin River.What are you working on now that is like that mandala?

"A group of Tibetan monks will spend a week, beginning Sunday, creating an elaborate piece of artwork near Spring Green out of tiny grains of colored sand."
"At the end of the week, the artwork, called a mandala, will be ritualistically destroyed and tossed into the Wisconsin River, symbolizing the Buddhist doctrinal belief in the transitory nature of material life."
