Local ground pigment in water-soluble oil medium on watercolor paper.
I found this carved window, cracked and weathered with age, in the town of Samar, a scenic mud-walled village perched high in the majestic canyons above the Kali Gandaki river. The hardwood for these windows could’ve come from a hundred miles away in India, as this region is mostly desert and the rare trees are mainly willow and juniper. The wealth and trade that supported that kind of imported luxury is long gone, so, despite considerable damage, the window was nearly irreplaceable.
