Google's Sand Mandala

Googlers were posting this photo of two buddhist monks working on a sand mandala at the GooglePlex yesterday. Supposedly, it will take all week to complete and when they are done, they will destroy it.

Google+ page posted this on, um, Google+ and wrote:

We're inspired by a group Buddhist monks visiting Google to create a sand mandala -- an intricate design made with colored grains of sand. The sand mandala will take all week to build, but as tradition goes, the masterpiece will be destroyed by its creators at the end of the week in a special ceremony to symbolize the impermanence of all things.

I can't wait to see when it is finished and how they destroy it? Wonder if a Penguin or Panda will be involved in the destruction?
