"You know about Father Mackay, don't you, John?" asked Tashi as we were having a beer at the Om Bar, "The crazy Jesuit Missionary from Canada who got kicked out of India and was invited to Bhutan by our third King?"

“Auntie knew Father Mackey from when she and Mom went to school in Darjeeling. Uncle was one of his students. Father Mackey built Bhutan’s modern school system, started our first college. He was here for over thirty years and became a Bhutanese citizen. The King decorated him with the Medal of Honor and gave him the title of ‘Spiritual Son of Bhutan.’ In all those years he didn’t make one conversion to Christianity. His superiors back home thought he was a heretic. But he liked to say most Bhutanese were better Christians than he was; that the Jesuits taught him to seek God with his mind—which is impossible—but the Bhutanese taught him to hold God in his heart—which is prayer.”

From BHUTAN: Hidden Lands of Happiness, by John Wehrheim (Serindia 2011)

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.

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.
