“Three other works feature a human figure and one of them is a portrait of Mona Lisa, in the aptly named piece, Mona Lisa in My Boat. The iconic figure is sat on a boat that looks like the ones that roam the premises of Phewa Lake. Mona Lisa is donning a haku patasi, and one wonders if she has lost some weight. The Nepali version of the famous painting was first conjured by late Manuj Babu Mishra, and Pariyar says that the work was made as a tribute to the late artist.”
