January was full of beautiful appearances at KMC Texas

Our team of artists….

were hard at work….

preparing the statues for our new shrine….

The ancient art of guilding..

is a very delicate process…

of applying thin layers of gold to surfaces

It requires a lot of concentration…

skilled training…

and a lot of patience

They have been dedicated to this project for many months now

And different people come in to help at various times

And after all the many hours of work…

the final result…

will be absolutely breath-taking

Meanwhile, the rest of the community was busy…

creating beautiful offerings…

and beautiful minds of love and compassion

And the best result of all…

is making people happy
