An ethnic Tibetan woman prays at Labrang Monastery during the Tibetan new year, in Xiahe county, Gansu Province, February 11, 2013. Tibetans in a northwest part of China which has been a focus of self-immolation protests against Chinese rule marked a low-key lunar New Year on Monday, with many saying celebrations were inappropriate while the burnings continued. At least 20 people have set themselves on fire in the region around Xiahe in Gansu province over the last year, according to exiles and rights groups. Xiahe is home to a large ethnically Tibetan population and also to the monastery at Labrang, one of the most important centres for Tibetan Buddhism. The Tibetan lunar new year is supposed to be a time for celebration, but many Tibetans who spoke to Reuters in Xiahe said there would be no entertainment this year.

A visitor looks at gas canisters that were salvaged from trash picked from Mount Everest and made into prayer wheels during a visual art symposium in Kathmandu November 25, 2012. Fifteen Nepali artists closeted for a month with a heap of 1.5 metric tons (1.7 tons) of trash picked up from Mount Everest transformed the litter into art, creating 75 sculptures, including one of a yak and another of wind chimes, made from empty oxygen bottles, gas canisters, food cans, torn tents, ropes, crampons, boots, plates, twisted aluminium ladders and torn plastic bags dumped by climbers over decades on the slopes of the world's highest mountain. Kripa Rana Shahi, director of art group Da Mind Tree, said the sculpting - and a resulting recent exhibition in the Nepali capital of Kathmandu - was aimed at spreading awareness about keeping Mount Everest clean.
