Stone sculpture arts - Statues
Kathmandu valley is very popular and very rich in stone sculpture art and architecture from centuries back. One can see many masterpieces of stone arts (especially stone statues, stone temples, giant stone water taps around Patan, Bhaktapur and Kathmandu durbar squares) in Kathmandu that were created by the highly praised Nepalese artisans and nowadays such arts and crafts are also available for interested buyers. Creation Nepal aims to promote this rare hand carving, and hand finishing arts made with the techniques and tools that are in use from hundreds of years by generations of craftsmen and preserve the cultural heritage of Nepal.
The items available with us are mainly the stone Buddha Dharma related statues that are sculpted from very special (harder to keep in exactly the same for hundreds of years) grey stone found near by the Kathmandu valley. Most of our statues are carved with detailed intricate robes using some auspicious symbols and highly decorated base.
