Procession to Llasa
A group of seven Tibetan Buddhists take part in a
procession, walking to the holy city of Llasa.
Periodically, they assume prayerful poses,

higher level of spirituality, indicated by their
changing from dark to light.
The sculpture is made up
of hi-fired clay figures, accented with variations
of iron oxide, and mounted on a
rough wood slab, with
