Speaking of the Expo Friday marks the National Pavilion Day of Nepal. With the theme "Tales of Kathmandu", the Nepal Pavilion is offering a quiet space for visitors to see the soul of a city.
Signature architecture, symbolic wood sculptures... Nepal takes visitors through a time tunnel of 2,000 years. The pavilion recaptures important historic periods via its legacy of art and culture. It also depicts the current urban expansion in Kathmandu, shedding light on the opportunities and challenges in environment protection and development of renewable energies.
An art form that traces Nepalese culture from its earliest beginnings right to modern times is sculpture. The recreation on wood provides an insight into the religion of the country, the life of the people, and of course the talent of Nepalese artists.
