COLLAGES AND PAINTINGS FROM NEPAL2005
This collection consists of collages and paintings made by Nepalese children aged 7 to 13 from the Daleki School. These young artists used locally-made paper to depict the natural beauty and architectural heritage which form a backdrop to daily village life. Many Nepalese people make their living from the rich and fertile land, which is represented in the delicate hand-made paper collages in this exhibition.
Throughout its history, many peoples have enriched the culture of Nepal, not only spiritually, but through a diversity of customs and forms of expression that are reflected in festivals and celebrations. Nepal attracts many visitors and tourists, yet much of the country is left undisturbed by Western civilisation.
This collection offers the viewer a unique opportunity to glimpse into this mysterious and remote region through the eyes of its children.
