Nepalese handicraft began during the 5th Century A.D. when different religions began to form their bases among the people of Nepal. Therefore, we see a lot of religious influence on Nepalese handicrafts. Traditional Nepalese crafts such as metal statues, ethnic costumes, traditional silver jewellery, wood carving, along with religious and ritual objects such as bells, vajra, stone sculpture, ceramics, and paubha painting are common.
