Himalayan art.

Art  Eight tons of trash were removed from Everest during two expeditions this spring, which fifteen Nepalese artists have turned into a range of sculpture now on display in Kathmandu:
"In one of the works by painter and poet Sunita Rana, white shards of aluminium from drinks cans are fashioned into medals signifying the bravery of mountaineers, while black metal tent poles are transformed into a wind chime.

"In another, remains of a helicopter which crashed in 1974 while carrying food for Italian climbers are incorporated into an idol of the Hindu God Ganesh."
