To show the diversity of these fine Nepali sign painters, I have included 17 different artists in the 23 pieces shown.   They are all approximately 12"x12" and hand painted on metal.

It is an honor to introduce more people to this disappearing art form.  

Please stop by and say hello on Sunday, September 15.   I look forward to meeting you and explaining more about this fair trade art project.
