“I re-visited Nepal in 2016 to, once again, be revitalized by the palpable aesthetic feeling tone communicated by the great artists and architects who created the grand Medieval architecture of Kathmandu… and also to participate in the shared sorrow of the destruction of much of this architecture by the 2015 earthquake. Despite the total destruction of this temple in Durbur Square, devotees still adorn the area with flowers.”

Dave exhibited this painting in the in the 2019 exhibition Ravages of Time & Permanence of Wonder at Suzhou Arts Collective in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China.
