On June 8, 2001, the Chapel Hill Herald reported that the "Buddhist mandala will depart Chapel Hill this afternoon as ceremoniously as it arrived about three months ago." The remains of the mandala, a work of art created by monks at the museum, will be released into Bolin Creek. "The monks are obligated by their faith to remove the sacred religious symbol, but it's been a big hit while at the Ackland [Art Museum]."
