See the Dogs Live: New Stone Age

There are some great new Danger Dogs available at New Stone Age  here in Los Angeles on West Third at Orlando.   Next time you are near the Beverly Center, stop  by and check out this wonderful boutique which features ecclectic and beautiful gifts.

Here is what's new at New Stone Age in the Danger Dog realm:

Willow.Shiva_106
Willow, a Golden Labrador Retriever, by Shiva Thapa.   The lettering in Red is in Tibetan script and translates as 'Dog here is brilliant'.     Shiva paints near Mahendrapul in Pokhara, and while it appears that Willow is all dressed up for Nepal's Day of the Dog, in reality this lucky dog lives the life of Riley every day in Malibu.

Pit.Shelby.Raaz
Shelby by Raaz Rai is pretty in pink.   This skillful portrait is elegantly lettered and is on very thick recycled metal.

BlackChihuahua.dilip_55
Gonzalo is a little black dog that looks like a long-haired Chihuahua to me.   This portrait by Dilip Niroj includes Nepali lettering that says 'Kukur dehi hosiar' (English translation 'Dog here is vicious') -- quite a contrast with the Enlightened Dog.   Beautiful brush work on this painting.

Coco.WhiteCat.Sabala
Coco the White Cat by Sabala is the first Cat ever to be offered here at New Stone Age.   This one has incredible eyes.   The Nepali script reads CoCo.

Doberman.Bindi.Sagar
Bindi, a beautiful Doberman, looks a little daunting here in her portrait by Sagar.   Just what you want in a Beware of Dog sign.   Sagar's name means 'ocean' in Nepali, and he signs his name with the Japanese chop meaning 'ocean'.  

Jack Russell
Fern the Odalisque, also by Sagar.   Fern is a cute and comfortable Jack Russell Terrier.

Marley.CorgiBeagle.Sabala
Marley, a Beagle/Corgi mix is the softest dog imaginable.   And happy, too, to be painted by Sabala. 

Birju.blue

This Maltese is painted by Vinosh, who is no longer available for the Danger Dog project as he has moved to Saudi Arabia to make more money than he would in Nepal.   The lettering was done by Birju, who signed the finished piece.

Birju.scottie
This little black Scottie Dog, Fala, is painted by the same duo of Vinosh and Birju.

Pug.Shree_96


Kahuna the Zen Pug by Shree Laimechhaine of Pokara who painted this stylized portrait.   Shree tends to give Nepali Extreme Home Makeovers to decor and this is no exception.    Note the paintbrush that underlines his signature.

KingCharles.Birju_53
Ollie and Lilly are a pair of Cavelier King Charles Spaniels painted by Vinosh and Birju.  

2008_9
Gemma is part Bull Dog.  Her portrait by Sagar has her jumping through hoops.

DSC03577_2
This is a Fawn Italian Mastiff painted by Pulkit.

New stone age 6
There is a lot more to see at New Stone Age.   Stop by and browse the store for unusual finds.

If you are interested in buying any of the Danger Dogs featured here today, please contact Nicole at (323)-658-5969 and they will be happy to help.

This hand-painted art form is fast disappearing in Kathmandu, as it already has in most parts of the world.   I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living.   Everybody is happy.   Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal!

I am now accepting custom orders for the next Danger Dog trip to Nepal sometime in spring 2011.   These signboards are approximately one foot square, they are painted on metal using synthetic enamel and can be hung indoors or out.    You tell me what you would like it to say!

Please contact me if you need a special present, as after making over 1700 of these pieces I have just about every breed imaginable.   Please write me at ampage1@gmail.com with any requests or questions.
