"Over the centuries, the many ethnic groups that populate the Himalayas have produced a myriad of fascinating masks. presented together, they evoke the spirit of the ancient cultures of this region of the world. While the classical art of the Himalayas (bronze, wood, and stone sculptures as well as murals and paintings on cloth) has been acquired by western museums and is recoqnized for its quality and richness through publications, the art of the Himalayan mask is just beginning to be discovered." Eric Chazot, 1990.
