Spontaneous visual rhythm is ever present in both foreground and background due to sinuous shapes and flowing colorful form. The archetypal characters and contents in coherent colors convey the message of coexistence, meditation and peace. The artist is in the quest of harmony and order in the state of chaos. Friendly and comfortable color combination sustains the viewers' interest. The artwork creates its own unique world with multiple significances to explore. The fineness of form adds intensity to visual experience. The primitive textures arouse the tactile sensation giving way to the imaginative flight to the far distance in time and space. The unique visual compositions present the aesthetic blend of tradition and modernity, myths and mysticism, the individual self and the cosmos. The condensed visual form presents the retrospection, recollection of native cultural treasure and anticipation of prosperity and peace. Fine craftsmanship and minutely detailed works with precision give a clue to the artist's patience and dedication. Monumental figures of divinity decked with traditional decorum along with symbols like lotus and <em>vajra</em> suggest invisible and intangible dimensions of the reality. Ritual postures and gestures convey a sense of mystical procession, a journey to the world beyond.</p> Yam Prasad Sharma Copyright (c) 2023 https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/jfac/article/view/60291 Thu, 30 Nov 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Logos of South Asian Countries: A Visual Aesthetic and Symbolic Significance https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/jfac/article/view/60293 <p>A national logo is a visual representation of a country, and it signifies the most powerful visual language of any country in the world. All the countries have their own logo to represent their country in visual form. In the context of each country in South Asia, a national logo is categorized as a national emblem. The national emblems of South Asian countries have different and unique meanings and are made with different cultural, religious, natural, and historical motifs and shapes. The main objective of this paper is to identify the visual aesthetic and symbolic significance of the national emblems of each South Asian country. The visual aesthetic contains elements of composition, color, shapes, and the essential rules of a logo, while the symbolic significance contains the symbolic meaning of each motif used for the entire logo of a South Asian country. This study finds that a country's culture, religion, and history should not be disconnected from the national emblem because the national emblem creates unique values for a country. A national emblem is like a mirror of a country, which represents the appropriate visual symbol of a country. This study is an analytical study based on qualitative method.</p> Koshal Hamal Copyright (c) 2023 https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/jfac/article/view/60293 Thu, 30 Nov 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Transitioning Towards a Paperless Library: Advantages and Implications https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/jfac/article/view/60297 <p>The transition towards a paperless library represents a significant shift in the way libraries operate and engage with their patrons.
