Danger Dogs from Nepal: Folk Art from the Himalayas

As part of the continuing series of finals for this 9th Danger Dog trip, we have the lovely tulip-eared Collie, Typhoon.   As you can tell from the vintage black and white photo, this show dog was a winner in the 1970's.   Here Typhoon by Sanjib Rana is finally finished with lettering by Birju Chaudhury. 

Pachiko is a black cat and a late order!   Her first portrait is by Sufraj.   Two more to come!   Danger Cat! Stay tuned.

Went through a different part of town yesterday and discovered that Putalisadak (means butterfly place in Nepali) is a hot bed of Danger Dogs!

This rare double dog caught my eye.  

The artist here used a sticker for the dog image and them added yellow and red paint.   This sign is also unusual in that it is signed by the artist.   While not totally hand painted, this sign definitely stands out for visual interest.

As you can see, German Shepherds are a popular choice for native Nepal Danger Dog signs.   Beware of Dog signs like this were once very common, now most are stencilled signs from various kennel clubs in Nepal.

Not nearly as interesting!

You will have to wait until next trip to order your very own Danger Dog portrait.   I leave in mid-October 2011 and will be back in plenty of time for holiday gifts.


To order, please send me a photo of your pet.   I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of paintings and three people will get work.   Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint.   These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.

Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front.   If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case.   Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!

Send your photo to or find out more at

Let's keep these artists painting.
