Why I Love Nepal: Mannequins

This guy cracked me up!   These photos were taken on Nepal's Day of the Dog.

Children don't dress like this as much as I'd like in Kathmandu.

These Mannequins were just hanging around.   This is how many, many women dress in Kathmandu, one of the many reasons I like it here so much.

These photos give a bit of the sense of chaos on the streets of Kathmandu.

Hope you all have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Danger Dog Art Project.

Here are some cool cats from this year's second trip.   Coco the White Cat by Sufraj Khadka, Lula the Zen Kitty (again by Sufraj), Rocky the 3-legged black cat by Amar Shrestha and Coco by Megh Raj Thapa (clockwise from top left).    All except the last one are still available. 

The signs above are approximately one square foot, painted on (often) recycled metal using synthetic enamel.   They can be hung indoors or out.  

The Danger Dog project is a Fair Trade project dedicated to promoting the fast-disappearing art of hand-painted signboards.  

You can commission a custom portrait of your pet, and I will give three signboard artists your pet's photo and you will give 3 people work, get a choice of 3 artworks and will be supporting a dying art form in Nepal.

Please contact me at ampage1@gmail.com with any questions or comments.   I also have many of these beautiful folk art paintings in stock.   Let me know what you are looking for.   Maybe I have it!
