Description
The art of the Malla period reflects the stylistic characteristics and artistic taste of the monarchs, and can be considered a highlight in the art history of Nepal. The high quality of the carving and the lively imagination exemplify the skills of the Newari masters during that period. Typical elements are the pronounced and detailed structure of the head, the shape of the tiara with circular diadems decorated with lotus motifs and jewelry, the shape of the earrings and necklace, both decorated with the same motifs and pearls. - (CK.0766)
