Infusing Wood With Faith

Nepalese aesthetics is a unique confluence of techniques influenced by the harsh climate of the region and the materials (for both media and pigments) it makes available. While the intra-regional variations found in the visual arts produced by Nepalese artisans are due to the prevailing natural environment, most of what emerges draws from the Buddhist faith. These ancient influences came over centuries from the Indo-Gangetic plains as well as Nepal, Kashmir, and even as far as the kingdoms of Central Asia. Throughout the Nepalese Buddhist sculpture tradition, the monastic meeting hall- and sanctuary-interiors have been the fountainhead of inspiration and projection for faith, and wood has been the select of the select media for just the purpose.

While it gives form to a mind-boggling variety of ritual implements as well as deities housed within monasteries, it is an expensive and high-skill material to work with. Nepalese artisans first employed it as ornately carved elements of monastic architecture. Internal building supports, door- and window-frames, the works. In the artisan's hands, wood evolved to give shape to relatively smaller statues of Bodhisattvas and mythological creatures. Gathered here in this exclusive Nepalese wooden sculptures section is a wide range of implements that suit the medium in question, as well as exquisite deity sculptures handpicked for their lifelike perfection and a quality of aesthetics only possible for wood.
