herons and monks

This meditative film juxtaposes two species, each mesmerizing in their own way. An eighty-four year old monk from Bhutan creates a medicine sand mandala, while great blue herons and egrets from the Gulf of Mexico stalk their prey.
Birds of myth and elegance, herons are at home on earth, in air and water. They are a symbol of good luck and patience, and the heron’s harsh cry was believed, by the ancient Egyptians, to announce the beginning of time.
