  KORA

INTRODUCTION

In 2009, Ricardo Mazal and his wife, Fabiola journeyed to Tibet to make the 54 kilometer kora, a meditative pilgrimage circumambulating a sacred site, around Mt. Kailash, the holiest mountain in the world. Boxes (cajas) of brilliant ground pigments, masses of prayer flags reflected in a lake, the truly devout who circle the mountain in successive prostrations, and Mazal’s rare opportunity to witness a traditional sky burial are all reflected in this series.
