I was inspired to do this piece as a satirical commentary of recent comments made by the 14th Dalai Lama in regards to the possibility of there ever being a female Dalai Lama. In the interview he pretty much said that any female Dalai Lama would have to be attractive or she wouldn’t be much use. This brought to me a vision of ‘His Holiness’ hosting a casting couch style job interview for his successor.
