Yak butter sculptures

I wasn’t particularly excited about this week’s episode of A Year In Tibet until these yak butter sculptures were shown. They’re made for the Tibetan new year celebration, Losar.

Some super intricate flowers here and I can’t believe this is made from yak butter:

I tried making some dough sculptures before, but it was never as squidgey and good as these. Screencaps from the bbc programme, A Year In Tibet. You can still watch the whole thing here.
