A short introduction of the author

***

The Himalayan region is an area of extreme historical and cultural interest, for the variety of its religious and artistic expressions. Among these, the best known and studied art and architecture is the classic Nepalese one  of the Kathmandu valley, which is full of testimonies of the highest value, based on the principles of Hinduism and Buddhism, which just there was irradiated to the Tibetan plateau.

Only in recent decades the attention of researchers has been applied also to the study of the archaic forms of religion and art, which are manifestations of a much older historical substrate and of the complex ethnic reality of the region.

Remote areas previously inaccessible are in fact now open to the possibility of exploration, while a wide variety of artistic products of different aesthetic value but always of considerable cultural interest, appeared progressively on the market.

Unfortunately, the lack of proper documentation often makes uncertain the origins and sometimes the same meanings of these objects, and this also on account of the profound social and cultural transformations that have affected the peoples of those areas.
