    Nepal Art Dogs

Enormous collection of Nepalese beware of the dog signs? Why not.

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Can we just take a minute to close our eyes and give thanks for the internet? Once that’s done, have a look around this collection of naively brilliant Beware of The Dog signs from Nepal. These little nuggets of creativity warn trespassers not just of dogs, but of horses, cats, enlightened chickens and even spiders. The woman behind this awe-inspiring collection is Michelle Page, whose interest in the signs goes beyond their charming aesthetic.

“Michelle opened her business in 2007 after noticing inexpensive digitized computer-generated graphics were beginning to replace hand-painted signs. She feared the art and expertise the artists employ would soon be lost to modern technology.”

The good news is they’re all for sale, the bad news is that you’re going to have to pick a favourite. Good luck!
