Riwoqê to Dêngqên: “Do you want to buy my Buddha?”

  • Richard Langlais


The most well-kept things in Riwoqê were the trees and the earth-receiving station. The poplars were planted inside fences made of wooden pickets painted blue, with their sharp tips carefully daubed in red. Around the trunks a trough had been dug so that when the trees were watered, the water would stay in place. The trees received the rays from the sun and transformed the town into a happier place.
