Tibetan Buddhist monks Create Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand-The Mystical Arts

Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.

Creative Packaging:
Mandarin oranges have always had a symbolic presence during Chinese New Year. Phonetically, they mean ‘gold’, and since 2011 was the Year of the Rabbit, the oranges were packaged into a shape that looked like carrots – to signify a golden harvest for the year. These were given to existing and potential clients to wish them a successful and profitable Year of the Rabbit.



Beautiful Barcode Designs That Will Make Packaging More Fun

Designed by Japanese design firm D-Barcode, these simplistic, yet beautiful barcodes will certainly make packaging more eye-catching and fun. 

Instead of the usual black-and-white lines, the firm turns the stripes into playful works of art like a cascading waterfall, a cityscape and streaks of falling rain.
