The artist

Rolf A. Kluenter graduated from the State Academy of Fine Arts, Dusseldorf, Germany. He has been a resident artist in Nepal since 1982 and regularly exhibits in Europe, U.S.A. and Australia. Rolf A. Kluenter is known for his exploration texture and form in the various mediums of wood, clay, and handmade paper. A long time student of Buddhism, Kluenter gained his inspiration for the Radheshyam Saraf Collection from a conversation he had with a Tibetan Rinpoche.

Art Collection

Among its many distinctions, as a former palace, a five star deluxe hotel, as a business destination, a rendezvous for superb dining, or for fantastic cultural events, the Hotel Yak and Yeti further honors Nepal's contemporary cultural-historical traditions in its premiere art exhibitions.

The exclusive Radheshyam Saraf Art Collection is now on display in the business center and Club Shangrila.

The heritage of contemporary impressions and age-old traditions meets in artist Rolf A Kluenter's bold calligraphic chalk sketches. Explore space, symbol and Tibetan Buddhist discipline in the densely textured handmade paper and resonating icons of the collection.

The Fifth Seal is the literature component of the Radheshyam Saraf Art Collection. Radheshyam Saraf, a long time promoter of fine arts and cultural heritage of the Himalayan region, was dedicated The Fifth Seal and the collection by his son, Arun Saraf. The Fifth Seal, available at the Yak and Yeti, is a collection of essay's from western scholars of repute who consider the development and structure of the different scripts the artist Rolf A. Kluenter uses in his work. The compilation and editing of the catalog was done by Andreas Kretschmar, executive director of Art Network International, Scholar of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies, and a resident of Nepal since 1985.
