About The Artist:

The history of Nepal rug making began in 1959 when ten thousands of Tibetans fled from the Chinese Communist troops that had occupied their country. They found a new homeland in countries like India, Bhutan and mainly Nepal and began to earn a living by making rugs. This was the beginning of the Nepal carpet industry.Traditional Tibetan Rugs have very comprehensive and colorful design elements. Typical are dragon designs, other animals and mythical beings like the phoenix bird or the snow lion, as well as Buddhist symbols. Also strong colors are typical for traditional Tibetan carpets.By the 1970's, sizes, colors, and subjects were tailored to Western tastes which included more geometric and floral designs.
