You can't see it up close, but trust that we did indeed finish all the detail work on the relief! Whew! It was a huge challenge, and forced this ani to tap into ancient hobbies (I use to draw a lot as a youngster), but we were indeed able to restore Migyur Dorje completely in time for the visit! After these photos were taken Holly, our diligent gardener, finished the whole Stupa off by replanting around it and Ashby set up an altar in front of it (offerings were being left on the step of the Stupa, which damages the paint and is actually not the ideal, either from the practical view of maintenance or the spiritual view of practice---but if there's no altar go ahead and make offerings where you can!).
