Traditional Masks of Nepal: Tracing back the Origin

About this blog: The Nepalese masks intrigued me. There is something about them. The expressions are loud, the colors are bright, the beads are assembled in weird fashion. The message, if at all any, they want to convey is about scare and terror!


Here is a complete series of travel blogs from Nepal!


I saw them on display at museums, on the temple details, curved on the window panes. Mostly, I spotted them being sold on the streets of Thamel market, Kathmandu. Here is a photo-blog on the Nepalese masks, who resembled closely with the Tibetan masks I found in Ladakh or Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh.
