The traditional sculpture exhibition jointly organised by Sumeru Art Village and Nepal Academy of Fine Arts that began on June 29 at the Nepal Art Council, Babermahal attempts to prove that Nepali artisans are capable and skilled.

The exhibition features works of 90 artists — who have learned the skills from their ancestors and through many generations they have been continuing their profession.

One can see artworks created from wood, metal and stone at the exhibition. The common sculptures are of Buddha, Kuber, Tara and Bhairab.

Thirty-five per cent money collected from the sale of artworks at the exhibition will be deposited in the account set up by NAFA to help the artists affected by earthquake, as per Shakya.
