Visages from Ladakh
The features forged by the sun and altitude express inner peace and gratitude. Farmers, monks and nomads from the highlands of northern India near the border with China often travel from far and wide to attend Dalai Lama's lectures. The ruggedness of the place is counterbalanced by the beauty of the landscape and the silence present at every step. In their festive costumes, they participate in the festivals organised over several days by the Buddhist monasteries.
In the workshop of a sculptor
The sculptor Olivier Estoppey, a regular at Bex&Arts exhibitions, opened his workshop to talk about his concepts, the birth of his works from the sketches to the creation of the statues which often weigh several hundred kilos. The world of black and white graphics that transforms into three dimensional objects.
