This is a beautiful and creatively painted Citipati in a recyclable Nepalese lokta paper greeting card with envelop.

The Citipati are two skeletons, one male, other female. According to a Buddhist legend, Citipati were two ascetics in their former existence. Once they were lost in meditation so deep they did not notice that a thief had cut off their heads. They then became ferocious enemies of the thief and vowed eternal vengeance.

Nepali handmade paper is crafted in the traditional way from the bark of Daphne Cannabina, commonly known as LOKTA among Nepalese, an under-storey shrub which grows in the middle mountains of Nepal. Handmade Lokta paper crafting is an ancient art that has remained unchanged for over 2000 years. Handmade Lokta paper is acid free and environmental friendly. It is extremely durable and that is one reason why government offices in Nepal are still using them for all the official documentations.
Our Crafting families has been using these beautiful handmade papers for picture framing, lampshades, art supplies, book making, displays, wall paper and many other wonderful and greeting purposes.

A perfect gifting card for every occasion.
