He tells us, too, of Tibet, that wide country "vanquished and wasted by the Khan for the space of twenty days' journey"—a great wilderness wanting people, but overrun by wild beasts. Here were great Tibetan dogs as large as asses. -A Book of Discovery
Marco Polo described the Buddhist monks in the mountians of Tibet.

We also enjoyed making mandalas.
Child in Harmony made lovely autumn mandalas, and although we were a little late to catch the fall colors, we made mandalas with the same idea in mind.

We also looked at Tibetan palace doors, which are so beautiful. The tassels on the door represented the different levels of Lamas who could enter the palace.
Painted Paper gave me the idea of making an art project out of these doors.
