To most people in the world, Bhutan is a beyul, a land so hidden that many people return blank stares when I mention the country. To the Bhutanese and the Layap themselves, Laya is a beyul within Bhutan. A land abundant with real and mythic animals: snow leopards and blue sheep, the white leopard (Thamzhi), the satyr-like donkey with a man’s lower body (Chuda) and the abominable snowman (Migoi) are everyday realities. Laya is a veiled outpost of ancient culture, backwoods tradition and the origins of modern Bhutan. The Shabdrung first fled to Laya when he escaped persecution in Tibet. According to legend, soon after his arrival in 1616 a Tibetan army came pouring over the pass. As the soldiers drew near the sacred grove a local deity called Mayap changed all the trees and rocks into fierce, well-armed warriors. The terrified Tibetans turned and ran, beaten without a single loss of life.

PHOTO PRINTS
Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.

CANVAS PRINTS
What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
