In Australia from 1997 to 1999 he carved some statues in terracotta, concrete and polystyrene and gave his advice for the architectural construction of temples in the classical Tibetan style.
At the Lama Tzong Khapa Institute, together with other painters, he worked on the frescoes of the vault and columns in the temple of Chenresig as well as the large statue of Chenresig, previously used in Martin Scorsese’s film, Kundun. He is a master craftsman specialising in woodworking.
