The sculptures on display are the portraits of well-known personalities such as Ram Krishna Dhakal, Krishnahari Baral and Rastra Kavi Madhav Prasad Ghimire. “The art works are outcome of the figments my imagination and of my fascination with the human anatomy,” added Subedi. 

The highlight of the exhibition, the sculpture titled Mohini, is based on a song by the same name penned by Subedi himself. The song was also launched during the event.
