About the Art

In this painting, Chitrakar recreated the story of Buddha in modern-day interpretation of Bratabandha ritual; here a Newar male child goes through a rite of passage by entering tutelary temple, that houses the deities of the guthi. By showing his respect and devotion, the boy engages in a coming of age ceremony that defines him as a part of that particular guthi.
