Lion Statues

The new lion statues arrived at Sakya Monastery on May 5, 2011.  The statues, weighing over a half ton each, are made of marble and were custom made for Sakya Monastery by an artist in Asia.  The snow lion is a national symbol of Tibet.   H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche requested that they stand at the entrance to Sakya Monastery as a representation of Tibetan religion, culture and protection.
