  • This is a book about the erotic art of Nepal in its various forms. It is also a book about the Kathmandu valley, its strange, mysterious, magical and enchanting powers. 

    Whether we speak of the odd-looking, carved stone representations at Pashupatinath, or the colourful wooden imagery that is found on many of the temples of the valley, you are sure to be completely surprised in more ways than one. 

    • What do these exotic and erotic art forms really represent?
    • Why have such images been placed on the external structure of so many sacred temples?
    • Who do these erotic depictions serve? 

    This book goes a long way to providing an insight into these questions. It gives us glimpses of life depicted as explicitly as it may without hurting the sentiments of more conservative societies. "this 'Naughtiness' of Nepalese art may send blushes to the furthest periphery of your senses. If you like your art to be saucy, sexy and straight to the point, read on. Please remember, this is a serious book!"
