Celestial Realms

The Art of Nepal from California Collections

By Nancy Tingley
Contributions by Nutandhar Sharma
The Kathmandu Valley is the most populated region of Nepal, and the Newar, probable descendants of the Kirati who settled in the Valley in the first millennium BCE, have for centuries created the art featured in Celestial Realms. In additin to Hindu and Buddhist sculpture and paintings, tribal works from the middle hill region are also included, providing a contrast with Newar production.
