Folk Art From the Himalayas

BE AWARE OF DOG signs from Nepal are one-of-a-kind, hand painted Fair Trade portraits of dogs commissioned by their owners and rendered in startling detail on metal. "Danger Dog" and other charming variations on the "Beware of Dog" theme are written in Nepalese and/or English, according to your specifications, and turned into a uniquely personalized work of art. These artists’ work is quickly being replaced by digital technology, even in Nepal.

Siggy the Boxer by SabalaYour pet's portrait can be rendered in the naïve, almost primitive style that results in a "doggie mug shot," or it can have a playful smile, a wary and growling demeanor, or a dangerous gleam in its eye.

In America as in faraway Nepal, these signs can be as effective as any alarm system, and are practical for indoor or outdoors.

This hand-painted art form is fast disappearing in Kathmandu, as it already has in most parts of the world.   I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living.   Everybody is happy.   Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal!

Be ahead of the pack.   I am leaving for Kathmandu to order custom portraits of your pet in March, 2016.  I will be returning in early to mid June.   I will accept orders through mid-May, 2016 for this trip.   The artists need help more than ever since the April 25, 2015 earthquake.

The Danger Dogs make wonderful presents, as you can imagine.   Order your Nepal Art Dog (or Cat, bird or horse) today.
