Description

Tibetan culture revives in hidden Himalayan kingdom. Photographers Luigi Fieni and Kenneth Parker document the cultural revival of Tibetan Mustang "the hidden kingdom" of the Himalayas. A restoration project of its sacred temple murals directed by Luigi Fieni over more than 20 years has reawakened Buddhist traditions. Included is Mustang's extraordinary landscape as well as the Lobas' spiritual and secular way of life. The kingdom of Mustang, where Tibetan Buddhist tradition continues, is emerging as a beacon of community-directed art conservation and resurgent culture. Sacred temples dominate the medieval capital Lo Monthang. Following centuries of deterioration a mural restoration project has taken place over more then 20 years, directed by conservator/photographer Luigi Fieni. This included training the unskilled Lobas in Western conservation methods. This extraordinary initiative led to a vibrant cultural renaissance in the kingdom.
