    During 2011 and 2014 Ι spent about nine months in the country of Nepal, walking, working, living. One of the strongest memories I kept from there is the dragon-like statues I saw in Newari and Tibetan buddhist temples of the places I visited. These statues are placed at the entrance, inside and around the temples, representing deities that guard the holy interior.

    The 4000 photos I made during my stay are a two-dimensional facade of my experience. In order to protect its holy interior, these photos were covered, deleted and highlighted with dragon-like deities made of silk and colour.
