The Buddhist festivals show traditional stories in costumed monks and dance. In this one, the wicked hunter comes in from the forest with his dog, another costumed monk, and is accosted by the festival's clowns who eventually convince him to repent and mend his ways. Here, he has just come down the mountainside next to the Paro Dzong (fortified monastery).
