Each day, the community manages to augment the grandiosity of scale and artistry. It is mind-boggling. The spirit of the offering is somewhat akin to the coloured sand mandalas of the Tibetan monks…so much effort and beauty for a moment so ephemeral.
As I write these words, the village has already been swept clean.
What wonders are planned for tomorrow? The village is rallying for their last great effort, the culmination, the apotheosis and triumph of Easter Sunday.
