Labrang Monastery in Xiahe County, Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province hosts a butter sculpture exhibition on the 15th day of the first month in traditional Chinese calendar each year and monk artists will show their butter sculpture works for visitors to watch and comment on. With monk artists' skillfulness, butter sculpture can be made into various shapes such as statues of Buddhists and humans figures, mountains and rivers, birds and beasts, trees and flowers, lofts and pavilions thus dubbed as "mirable flower in the snowy highland".
