About the Art

Yamuna Shrestha’s creation, the Latokosero, a ceramic owl in Nepali, beautifully encapsulates the essence of family. The intricately crafted owl doubles as a significant symbol in religious beliefs, serving as the vahana, or divine mount, for the goddess Laxmi. This dual representation adds depth to the artwork, blending cultural significance with a profound sense of familial connection. Through the Latokosero, Shrestha skillfully intertwines artistry and spirituality, creating a piece that resonates with both cultural and religious dimensions, enriching the observer’s experience with layers of meaning and tradition.
