Photographer's Note

kathmandu..the house of the living goddess..the little girl lives here tucked away for years..as a goddess..then at the age of puberty..no longer a goddess...and no longer a child.

Not only does Nepal have many gods, goddess, deities, Bodhisattvas (near Buddhas), avatars and manifestations, which are worshipped and revered as statues, images, paintings and symbols, but it also has a real living goddess. The Kumari Devi is a young girl who lives in the building known as the Kumari Ghar, right beside Kathmandu's Durbar Square...
