The Kathmandu Valley is the most populated region of Nepal, and the Newar, probable descendants of the Kirati who settled in the Valley in the first millennium BCE, have for centuries created the art featured in Celestial Realms. In addition to Hindu and Buddhist sculpture and paintings, tribal works from the middle hill region are also included, providing a contrast with Newar production. Nancy Tingley is an independent scholar whose most recent exhibitions include Arts of Ancient Viet Nam: From River Plain to Open Sea at Asia Society, New York, and buddhas at the Crocker Art Museum. Nutandhar Sharma is a freelance cultural historian and publisher of Amalekh Weekly. He was formerly a member of the Department of Cultural and Religious History of South Asia, University of Heidelberg, Germany.
