Mount Everest (known as qomolangma to Tibetans), at 29,029 feet (8,848 m) above sea level, is the highest mountain on the earth. Its massif includes several peaks above 24,000 feet (7,500 m). sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first official ascent of Mount everest in 1953. It has been climbed many times since then. Miyolangsangma, the Tibetan Buddhist goddess, lives at the top of qomolangma. Known as the goddess of infinite giving, she rides a golden tiger and hands out jewels (wishes) to those who deserve them. Many climbers ask for her gifts before beginning their ascent. this piece is a full circle, a mandala if you will, which represents wholeness.
