Nepalese Seasons: Rain and Ritual

Nepalese Seasons: Rain and Ritual

from Gautama V. Vajracharya

Featuring almost fifty objects from the Rubin Museum’s premiere collection of Nepalese art and select loans, the catalogue illustrates the enduring manifestation of rituals, agrarian festivals, and the natural environment in the art of Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley.

This is the first exhibition connecting well-known deities represented in Nepalese art to rituals and festivals surrounding the rainy season, or monsoon, and highlighting the importance of the seasons to the culture and everyday life of Nepalese people.
