Albuquerque’s Open Space Visitor Center sponsors a mandala-making event each winter solstice (or at least, on the Sunday closest to the solstice). The mandalas are made entirely of bird seed, and migrating geese and cranes eat the artwork during the following week. This is a photo of part of a mandala made last year.
