This book is concentrated on the Nepali modern
sculptors. However, in order to elaborate the
modern scenario it is necessary to understand
the qualities and attributions of the pre modern
phase of Nepali sculptures. In this regard this
book has attempted to shed light on the
brief introduction to sculptures from Malia era
subsequently connecting it to the pre-modern
era with the development of trend and qualities
of statue in Nepal. We have categorized the
phase of statue as two separate turning points
in order to clearly bring forth the creative
advancements. Furthermore, the book also
attempts to chronologically show the turning
point in Nepali sculpture; the Europe visit of the
then Prime Minister Jung Bahadur Rana and its
effect on the Nepali sculpture scene.
This book has attempted to bring to the fore
the ground of modern sculpture of Nepal

Nepali sculpture. In order to represent these
developments we have tried to outline some
of the significant sculptors of Nepal who have
