Aesthetic Splendor

MFF’s works of art have found their honored place among the collections of His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, President George W. Bush, the King of Nepal, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, Queen Elizabeth II, and His Holiness and Beatitude Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia, Ilia II. His photographs have been presented to international heads of state.

“Mother and a Pearl Necklace” is the local Nepalese name for Mt. Ama Dablam. Often it is regarded as the most impressive mountain in the world. Mt. Ama Dablam’s aesthetic splendor glistens from majestic promontories. There are only ten official copies of this photo printed on canvas and each, through its natural allure, transmits earth’s healing frequencies. Because he so admired the beauty of Nepal, in 1996 MFF presented the first copy of this serene photograph to His Majesty King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev.
