An integral part of Nepalese culture, the art of pottery goes back milleniums, with the oldest being found in Lumbini with a recorded age of over 2,600 years old. These pots are used in everyday life, be it storing, transporting water, decorative purposes, lamps and even for making liquor. Made on a traditional potter's wheel, and adorned with traditional Nepali designs, this is quintessential Nepali culture at its best!
