Dark Clouds over Kathmandu
My Kathmandu Kitchen!

More final Danger Dogs!

Spicy the Cocker Spaniel Chow mix in a monolithic mood by Indra.   The photo has a prominent tongue but I asked for the portrait from Indra without!

The Boudha Stupa as seen from my friend's veranda.   They just got a new green skirt on the stupa that is fluttering in the wind, showing the red underskirt!

Choosing from three portraits will be hard for many of these Danger Dog (and Cat!) afficionados, but the whole project is designed to give more work to these struggling artists.   Like everywhere in the world, modernity reigns, and in Nepal this means that the old charming hand-painted signs are being replaced by computer-generated images. 

I hope you would agree that this would be a shame.

Time is running out to order your very own pet memorialized on metal.   I am only accepting orders until June 1, as the bandhas (general strikes) are making it more difficult to travel through town.

Contact me at ampage1@gmail.com to order.   Your satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front.   You will receive a choice of 3 portraits by Nepali signboard artists.   You can see more examples and learn how to order at www.NepalDog.com.

 

But hurry!
