Big Foot in Nepal - Return of the Yeti
July 05, 2011
The mythical Yeti is omnipresent in Nepal. Apparently you can be served by a Yeti with a tray in a restaurant...
You can stay at the Yeti Hotel (still that Yeti has a tray and that big foot sticking out)...
Or you can go paragliding with a Yeti!
Crazed Lhasa Apso by Ram Mohan Patel 2008 SOLD
Anyone want a Danger Dog that looks a bit like a Yeti? This young Lhasa Apso (photographed at Bergamot Station) looked normal until Ram Mohan got ahold of her !
This painting is 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.
Immortalize your pet on metal!
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 [email protected] or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting.
ORDERS 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!
