The swan tapestry

The inspiring and richly decorated Nepalese temples ornate the Bagmati area of Kathmandu. Their meticulous attention to every detail leaves you in semi-meditative state of reflexion. Supporting temple columns are covered in detailed silk drapes with vivid colours, alternating in an arrow shape, giving an impression of ascension towards the sky where a white swan awaits. Once separated from earthly temptations, this tapestry alludes to Enlightenment, a sought out route to obtain peace.
