Patina Artwork in Papier-mâché, Sustainable and Lightweight!

Shiva was absorbed into Tantric Buddhism as one of the deities guarding the Buddha. Shiva’s avatar Mahākāla, literally means “great” + “darkness or blackness”.

He is usually worshipped in the aniconic form of lingam. Shiva is a pan-Hindu deity, revered widely by Hindus in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.

Shiva is the destroyer who ends the cycle of time which, in turn, begins a new Creation. With Parvati, Shiva had a son, the god Ganesha. The boy was in fact created out of earth and clay to keep her company and protect her while Shiva went on his meditative wanderings.

Our Story

Jayav Art is a social enterprise which transforms recycled paper into environmentally friendly sculptures while creating decent jobs for vulnerable people. The adventure began in 2010 when Philippe Brousseau, a French artist of great renown was touched by a Cambodia ravaged by 30 years of war. Then, he met his Cambodian counterpart Tara, who was also passionate about papier-mâché art and who had the same desire to promote this local art that was still unknown internationally. Philippe and Tara wanted to create their eco-friendly artwork with conscience. It’s why they focus on an environmentally friendly approach, realizing that every step they take affects the planet and the people on it. Read more

How do we make sustainable art work from papier-mâché?

Firstly, all of our sculptures are entirely handmade with recycled paper and vegetable fibers. Then, they are decorated with natural pigments and acrylic colors. Finally, our environmentally friendly manufacturing process makes it possible to recycle old newspapers. As a result, our papier-mâché artworks are lightweight while appearing as heavy as any other sculpture. This means they are easy to ship. Read more
