Incredible Papier-mâché Artwork – Sustainable and Lightweight!

The Buddhist deity Chintamani Lokeshvara is a Bodhisattva who fulfils all the physical and spiritual needs of his devotees.

Shadakshari Lokeshvara is the bodhisattva of compassion (Avalokiteshvara) in his role as the lord of the six realms of existence (hell beings, hungry ghosts, animals, humans, demigods, and gods). He personifies the well-known Sanskrit invocation om mani padme hum, or “hail to the jewel in the lotus,” which is found at the top of the hanging beneath the seed syllable hrih, thought to contain the essence of the bodhisattva.

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
