Majestic Illumination

A thousand years of Tibetan mural masterpieces revealed for the first time
Hidden amidst soaring snowy mountains, deep valleys, and desolate deserts are some of the greatest treasures of Buddhist culture and Tibetan heritage. For more than a decade, photographer Thomas Laird traveled the length, breadth, and far-flung corners of Tibet’s plateau to capture the land’s spectacular Buddhist murals in all their sublime vastness, intricacy, and their spiritual, emotional, and psychological enrichment.

Deploying new multi-image digital photography, Laird compiled the world’s first archive of these artworks, some walls as wide as 10 meters, in life-size resolution. This breathtaking publication assembles Laird’s portfolio in extra-large format with six fold-outs, printed in five colors including gold. Featuring both complete murals and copious details, it immerses readers into these precious, extraordinary masterpieces.

In recognition of this World Heritage landmark and preservation of Tibetan culture, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has signed all copies of this Collector’s Edition. In the 528-page scholarly companion book, Buddhist writer and academic Robert Thurman takes us through this transcendent journey with detailed text on the murals' spiritual significance while captions from experts Heather Stoddard and Jakob Winkler shed light on the storylines and artistic context of each image.

As his Holiness the Dalai Lama has himself explained, these murals are not just objects of beauty, but serve as points of reference and guidance for practitioners of Buddhism, yoga, and meditation, as well as for anyone seeking to incorporate mindfulness into their daily life. Binding contemporary photographic technology with ancient traditions, this book is at once a majestic art piece, a major milestone in the appreciation of Buddhism, a precious monument to Tibetan culture, and a vital source for the contemplative arts and sciences.
SUMO-sized Collector’s Edition limited to 998 copies, each signed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, with a bookstand designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect and humanitarian pioneer Shigeru Ban.

fabergÉ visionnaire chronograph ceramic

Fabergé Watch Experience! Pick up your handcrafted timepiece at the Fabergé atelier in Switzerland. FABERGÉ VISIONNAIRE CHRONOGRAPH CERAMIC The stars, and the time they measure, have seen many stories start and end. Some stories end abruptly, others echo down the eons. To mark 100 years after the start of the Russian Revolution, Fabergé presents a chronograph of revolutionary significance in the horological cosmos, paying homage to the unfinished Constellation Egg of 1917. The Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph marks a new standard in charting time. Hours and minutes are read at the periphery of the watch dial while the chronograph function takes centre stage. The automatic calibre 6361, developed in partnership with Agenhor, offers a new intuitive chronograph display. It is a revolutionary new movement that imparts unprecedented clarity, precision and efficiency to the highly popular chronograph complication. It is the modern-day analogue to a Fabergé egg — a mechanical opus with wonder at its heart. Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph Ceramic timepiece features an opaline dial with TCI luminescent coating 15-minute indicators, sapphire with metallic treatment and applied numerals and hour indicators and an automatic chronograph movement of revolutionary significance, developed by Agenhor, encased in a 43mm black ceramic and titanium case, with alligator strap.
