A dzong is a type of fortified Buddhist monastery and administrative center found in the Himalayas, and Tashichho Dzong, on the outskirts of Bhutan’s capital Thimphu, has been the seat of the Bhutanese government since 1968 (it was built in 1772). To me, this image illustrates how Bhutan's ancient and enduring culture can remain relevant and meaningful in today's world. The dzong is illuminated by hydroelectric power – clean, renewable energy and Bhutan’s number one export. Bhutan is the only country in the world that is carbon negative. In other words, Bhutan absorbs more carbon from the earth’s atmosphere than it releases. This nation has an unparalleled environmental ethic based on its Buddhist philosophy and its development policy that prioritizes Gross National Happiness – including the wellbeing of all of nature – over Gross National Product.

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.
