JM Knudsen Lends His Vision to the Kalachakra Mural


Jonny has been working on the Kalachakra mural and Autumn Payne captured some of it on video for your viewing pleasure. The lines are done in marker and will be painted over. The technique is an old one -- used for centuries by artists like Michelangelo. He used simple tools: a level and a ladder. Feel free to drive or walk by and see the progress!
