Royal Chitwan National Park is the first national park in Nepal. It was established in 1973 and granted the status of a World Heritage Site in 1984. There are many precious animals, they are rhinoceros, yak, gharials, leopard, elephant and danphe etc., so it was the most impression part of my first visit to Nepal in 2014.
Pen, ink and stitching on Lokta Paper, which is a handmade artisan paper indigenous to Nepal. I was inspired to do this drawing based based on a memory of a concert I attended at The Wexner Center of the Arts in Columbus, Ohio. They brought in Tuva Throat singers from Mongolia. The sound they produce is very unique and memorable.
