Описание: In many parts of Asia, folk jewellery has disappeared in the wake of modernism. In Nepal, however, where the formidable Himalayas have formed a barrier to outsiders and their influences, native jewellery traditions remain alive and strong. Jewellery in Nepal is worn for decorative, talismanic and investment purposes. Gold jewellery is abundant and its many forms are expressed in unusual sizes: silver, readily available in coin form, is freely used - as are beads of glass, coral, turquoise, amber and agate. In over a dozen trips to Nepal's most inaccessible areas, goldsmith and jewellery designer Hannelore Gabriel has documented the local jewellery worn for both daily and ceremonial decoration.

Описание: Jewelery reflected not only the owner's personal wealth, but also social and political status, whether worn by noblewomen or government officials, as well as the ancient cultural values of Hinduism and Buddhism. Gems and jewelery often served as metaphors for ideals of the faith, and Himalayan deities were lavishly adorned. Until now, much of the information on this jewelery has been derived from accounts by Western travelers or Tibetans in exile--a lack of archaeological and literary evidence and recent political upheaval having prevented a proper study. This book offers an introduction to the subject, exploring issues of adornment and iconography, materials and manufacture, and how jewelery was defined and appreciated in the Himalayas. It is illustrated with examples of the gold jewelery produced in the region in recent centuries.

Описание: In 1971 a small group of botanists and horticulturists organised a three month expedition to the Upper Arun Valley region of eastern Nepal. Their aim was to collect seed and specimens of ornamental and economic plants both wild and cultivated in a remote comer of this landlocked kingdom. This book, originally published in 1981, chronicles the travels and activities of the three-man horticultural team. The journey, which took the expedition to the Tibetan border and back, often followed little known tracks through some of the world's most dramatic and loneliest mountain terrain. During this time it either camped or enjoyed the hospitality of Tibetans in their isolated villages, sharing in their ceremonies, their meals, their dances even. The native vegetation was still relatively undisturbed and the team enjoyed the thrill of walking through mixed woods rich in species including cream-barked birch and silver fir. Elsewhere it crossed alpine pastures sprinkled with blue gentians and the golden rosettes of Himalayan poppies. On one occasion, at 17,000 feet, the botanists wandered on the so-called 'Roof of the World'. Among the many unusual plants they encountered was a trio of high altitude curiosities and rarities - the Snowball plant, the Noble Rhubarb and the Golden Edelweiss. In the twenty-two years since it was first published, this book has been treated as an essential guide by visitors and trekkers to Nepal - especially those heading for the famous mountains of the Everest and Makalu regions, as well as being highly acclaimed by gardeners. Out of print for several years, this new edition has been thoroughly revised in respect of nomenclature whilst much new information has been incorporated. A new chapter 'Back to the Milke Danda' has been added describing a follow-up trek in spring 1973 when the magnificent rhododendrons were seen flowering. Most important of all, however, are the illustrations which make this book a visual treat as well as an exciting record of modem plant hunting.

Описание: In the 1980s, wood masks, similar to those worn by Eskimo shamans, began to appear in Parisian galleries that specialized in exotic art. Only the customary red wax affixed to the objects indicated that their origin was in fact Nepal. This title sets out to uncover the history of the masks and to determine their place in Nepalese culture.
