'Da Mind Tree' and its art branch The Art Club Nepal- the contemporary Nepali sculptors’ and artist group have put all their effort in transforming the waste material into the most amazing art. Da Mind Tree is collaborative partner with Everest Summiteers Association (ESA) in this project. ESA has given 1.5 tons of waste collected from the Everest region.
A group of more than 20 renowned artists were involved in creating the art.
