A Paubha that is 25 years in the making has finally seen the light of day at the Museum of Nepali Art. Now the public can breathe in the incredible details of this masterpiece by veteran artist Lok Chitrakar, though it is still a work in progress. The immensely intricate artwork will convince the onlooker that this painting itself is a coursebook on Newa Buddhist (tantric) iconography -- a diagrammatical manual that will help the reader understand life and existence, and eventually guide him/her to nirvana.
