More About this Item


Description: Nepali (Nepalese) Polychromed Wood Carving of Shiva the Hindu Deity with four arms, who is the supreme god known as "the destroyer" within the Hindu trinity that includes Brahma and Vishnu. Estimated more than 100 yrs old. The Newars are the creators of most examples of art and architecture in Nepal. Traditional Newar art is basically religious art. Newar devotional paubha painting, sculpture and metal craftsmanship are world-renowned for their exquisite beauty. Stone sculpture, wood carving, repousse art and metal statues of Buddhist and Hindu deities made by the lost-wax casting process are specimens of Newar artistry. From as early as the seventh century, visitors have noted the skill of Newar artists and craftsmen who left their influence on the art of Tibet and China. Besides exhibiting a high level of skill in traditional religious art, Newar artists have been at the forefront in introducing Western art styles in Nepal. (Wikipedia) Size: See Ruler Photo.
