Lot Essay

Discover the majesty of the Khan Tengri peak, the summit that represents the very essence of our world. A powerful mountain range in the Eastern Tien Shan, on the border of Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and China, it has captured the imagination of travelers for centuries. In the ancient Turkic-Mongolian worldview, Tengri, the supreme deity, resides here, distributing the length of life, bestowing supreme power in society, and influencing it.

The famous American mountain photographer Sergey Melnikoff, a.k.a. MFF, considers Khan Tengri to be one of the most beautiful peaks in the world because of its well-placed ridges and geometrical pyramidal symmetry. The master of photography, whose unique work we offer at our auction, described the moment of shooting as follows:

“The evening was coming. Soft shadows lay from the mountains to the valley. The sun was gilding the peaks of the ridges. From edge to edge, along the entire horizon, a great wall of the Central Tien Shan mountain range stood in the glaciers and snows. It was all burning with golden-orange and red tones of sunset, and Khan Tengri was blazing from above like a giant cut ruby, set in the dark turquoise sky. The rays of the setting sun reflected off the majestic marble wall that forms the northern part of the pyramid of this most beautiful mountain in the world. But then, the sun sank behind the horizon, the sky darkened, the colors became dull, the orange tones were replaced by pink, the pink by purple, then ashy, and only Khan Tengri burned with a bloody red glow of molten metal against the dark sky.”

Now is your chance to own a unique piece of art that captures the essence of Khan Tengri. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to bring home the stunning beauty of Khan Tengri and the ancient traditions that surround it. Place your bid now and experience the magic of this powerful mountain range.
