Self-promotionEdit

I’m not sure the article should be a vehicle to promote the street-artistry of George C Clarke (manholemandala.blogspot.com). So I removed the following section:

The sacred destruction of mandalas may be done in other ways. Some sand mandalas are placed on sidewalks. Often people and children will use the materials provided by the artist to make a sand mandala. The mandala is exposed to the elements in a high traffic public space. In the instance of manhole mandalasand street mandalas, the making and the destruction is also a sacred process. The destruction is partially completed by people who pass by and unknowingly step on the mandala without seeing it. Sometimes, children will play with the sand. Some persons will help it along by scuffing the mandala. The rain, wind and snow will finish the work till not a trace of sand remains. Sometimes the artist will even sweep it up so the sand can be recycled in another street mandala.

It was sneaked in without context. Bossk-Office (talk) 20:49, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

About one of the picturesEdit

I noticed a file name for a picture was "Amazing sand art.jpg" This seems very POV (calling something "amazing" is obviously a matter of opinion) and should be renamed immediately. 98.238.188.211 (talk) 20:56, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
