NEPALESE  DOUBLE  PUPPET

AS-270    NEPALESE  DOUBLE  PUPPET    £32
Vibrant two faced puppet in colourful costume, four arms. 42cm. tall. Various colours. These masked puppets are used each January/February during the ancient Swasthani Festival of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal. This is an important festival involving the whole community. Children are given puppets and small masks to play with and adults wear larger masks during that time. Dancers and musicians perform in the village and town squares. They represent the various Hindu deities that must be worshiped in order to give good fortune to the community during Springtime and for the planting season.

The masks are hand made of clay and paper and covered woth a fine cotton gauze before being brightly coloured and lacquered. The clothes are always made out of hand loomed cottons produced in the medieval city of Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu Valley.
