Buttered Sculpture Festival
This festival is held on the 15th day of the first month of the Tibet year. During the festival, lamas form various monasteries and folk artists make colorful buttered sculptures in the shapes of flowers, immortals, figures, birds and animals. They hang these sculptures onto the flower frames in the Jokhang Monastery. In the evening, they ignite these butter oil lamps. During the festival, there are puppet performances.
