Nepali sculpture is valued mainly from their religious perspectives. To enhance their aesthetic importance, sculptures be given a proper recognition in the society. People should be encouraged towards the aesthetic side to improve the painting style and sculptures should be given an important position in the society.
For the preservation of Nepali sculptures following steps should be followed:
- Importance of sculptures should be introduced
- Exhibitions should be held from time to time.
- Necessary tools should be provided to the interested people.
- Old, Important and valuable sculptures should be preserved in the museum.
- Regular cleaning and mending of the sculptures should be done.
I have found a sculptor. He was very busy making several images of goddesses and idols. His creations were scattered everywhere around him. They were of god, goddess, animals, birds etc. I asked him several questions on sculpture. He said to me that metal, stone, cement, ironwood, chemicals are necessary to make idols, images and statues. To show the carvings on images is very difficult job. Collar, scale, hammer, thread and pencils are necessary for making images. It may take more than one month to complete an image. He also said that such his creations have the market within our country or outside the country.
