It's not like stuffing wild animals at all. One takes a work that stems from another`s process while the other kills and stuffs a once living creature. @Thonious - why is it that the process is where the beauty lies? We don`t engage in the process so we can not benefit from the experience. However once the project is complete we can view it and apply it to our own experiences, likes and dislikes. People often throw out this line about "the process" because they think it sounds deep and philosophical but I don`t buy it. I think it is the finished piece that can bring the most joy to the world. We can`t all watch Van Gogh paint something but we can send the painting all around the world so that all can enjoy it.

Have see massive mandalas in the monesteries. You want to preserve that beauty, it's difficult thing to watch when it`s swept away. Whole process is slow, pedantic with a finality that is meaningfully memorable. This vid though was like watching a beehive. The music was wrong and they were standing ( traditionally done on the floor) there was no sense calm. Mandala was so pretty though.
