Two Tibetan monks are creating a traditional work of art at the Ute Indian Museum in Montrose.
The artwork is called a "mandala".
Made only of colored sands brought over from India, the sand is gently scattered with copper tools, layering intricate symbols to represent specific deities.
The one currently on display at the museum is the deity Vajra Behrava, representing wisdom and peace.
The monks say the traditional artwork represents how one can achieve peace from deep meditation and concentration.
So long as that concentration is focused on something of enjoyment, the one doing so can find inner peace.
The artwork will be on display until May 8th.
After that, it will be destroyed, and the sand put in a nearby river - in hopes that the meaning of peace put into the artwork will spread around the world.
