It has a lot of detail . It is colorful.

This is a amazingly vibrant work of art. All the symbols probably tell some kind of story. It is amazing how it is so symmetrically painted.

Yes, the colors are quite vibrant. The symbols you see are all elements of a sacred circle representing the Buddhist universe. Good observation about the remarkable symmetry. Making this even more astounding is the fact that it's not painted, but rather, it's created with sand. Here is a video of this mandala being made: http://artsconnected.org/resource/97182/yamantaka-mandala
