A chalk outline was drawn for each of the ten Tibetans who committed self-immolation since 27 February 2009. A plate with the name, age and details of each person, as well as a candle, a khatag and small Tibetan flag were added inside the outlines.

“Since 27 February, 2009, ten Tibetans committed self-immolation in Tibet in protest against China’s brutal occupation.”
