Democracy looks like Tibetans living a free and chosen life, without suppression by *any* government. Free to be buddhists and free to choose the Dalai Lama as their spiritual leader.

    Perfect timing here - he's clearly completely absorbed in, and in love with, what he's doing. There's a lot of peace in this image, it's a wonderful picture of Tibet to contrast to everything in newspapers etc.

    Dennis, I've to agree, in the photo you send me Takeshi does bear a striking resemblance. There's no way though it could have been him, considering I was in a small tibetan village, rarely visited at the time I was there.
    Trivia: the room where he was working was my bedroom that evening. Hospitality was the village's inhabitants second nature.

    I love the face of the monk and the face of the sculpture...it almost seems like the sculpture is enjoying being sculpted! Great shot!

    The texture on his face against the smooth texture on the buddha's face makes this one nice. Good job.

    I love these people. I met several monks when they were here in Panama City, FL.
