After the monastery, we visited a place where the Buddhist art is kept alive through the generations. This place is a school where people go to learn about Buddhist art and all the intricate details about the paintings, sculptures, and accessories.

Here are a few pictures of items being made from stone and wood. What I specifically found that was amazing was a group of deaf and mute artists that spend hours a day just working and practicing on the same paintings that we saw in the monasteries. A member of our group was communicating with them via sign language. It was quite impressive.
