The Lama Dance was originally a Tibetan tradition held over two days immediately prior to the New Year. Its purpose was to cleanse all negative forces from the past year in preparation for an auspicious and joyful new year. Little is known about Veevers, who designed at least five travel posters for the Indian State Railways in the 1930s.
