Waste Mandala

From 2011, a group of volunteers started to collect garbage from the Himalayan peaks and Holy Sites in Nepal. They are the Green Soldiers, the special army headed by Acut Gurung that, as in a Bollywood version of Don Quixote, carries out a fight against windmills made of plastic, indifference, and loss of cultural identity. Inspired by this vision, the Green Soldiers want to leave an indelible mark, to regain an ancient symbol starting exactly from what is considered as a scrap: a huge Mandala.
