Project Description


Title: Chusum Zorig in Thimpu

Bhutan has an unique school for teaching the traditional arts and crafts, called the chusum zorig, the thirteen crafts. The graduates of this school are skilled artists in their craft. When I visited the school there was a small exhibition of prize winning work of the students.
This picture caught my attention and admiration because it is a fusion of antique painting, here the figure of the Buddha and a modern interpretation of the surroundings, rather abstract even.
