Big Foot in Nepal - Return of the Yeti
Happy Bastille Day from French Danger Dogs

Mannequins from Nepal


This sad, sad mannequin is from a small shop in Boudhanath, Nepal.   While I have seen many unusual headdresses around the Boudha Stupa, I have never seen one like this.

A 'menly' hipster mannequin.

These two chef mannequins watch over a busy downtown Pokhara street.

She's all tied up with her Korean language lessons !   Memory cards and darts?    It is a memorable image and I would think of them first to learn Korean in Pokhara.

For more images of Mannequins from Nepal, go to a previous post here.


Sasha the German Shepherd by Sufraj Khadka, Hari Timesina and Amar Shrestha 2010 (clockwise from top left) Top two are available, the bottom one by Amar is sold.

These paintings are part of the Nepal Art Dog fair trade art project.   These talented signboard artists are losing work to digital graphic designers and rarely hand-paint signs now.  


To order your own pet as a Nepal Art Dog, 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.

ORDERS ARE OPEN FOR NEXT TRIP: (OCTOBER, 2011).   I'll be back in early December with your order.

American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.   Micro-finance through art patronage!


Goodbye from Dogmandu!
