Atsara is a clown who guarantees a good atmosphere, especially in religious festivals like Tshechus. He entertains visitors not only in the breaks but also during the performances. He often makes crude jokes with dancers and singers, which the visitors reward with roars of laughter. His red mask with the laughing mouth and cheeky looking eyes is a symbol of his nature. The yellow curtain with the green-reddish pattern is typical in Bhutan. This material can also be found on doors and windows.

The Artist

Pema Gyeltshen is self-taught. Painting has always been his passion. As a child, he discovered his love for painting and developed his talent and his own style step by step.

During his schooldays, he received several awards for his work. Recently, Pema won the first prize in an art competition in which renowned artists from Bhutan and India participated. His paintings are displayed in almost all galleries of the Bhutan’s capital and they are sold in many parts of the world.

However, Pema earns his livelihood in a company working in the graphics and film industry.
