Stone Work

Stone Carving

Walking around the monasteries in Tibet one will see a multitude of stones with the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" carved ornately into it. This is a prayer for compassion to all living beings, and is one of the most common mantras in Tibet. His medium of choice, Shedhe loves carving a multitude of designs and mantras into stone. Using hand chisels and hammers he meticulously chips away at the rock as patterns emerge.
