Lot Essay

Don’t miss your chance to own a stunning piece of Himalayan beauty! Our charity auction offers an incredible photograph titled “Machapuchare,” captured by the talented American photographer Sergey Melnikoff, a.k.a. MFF.

This breathtaking photograph showcases the sacred Machapuchare mountain in all its glory, as the sunset illuminates its majestic peaks and highlights its extraordinary relief against the flaming sky. The double summit of Machapuchare resembles the tail of a fish, earning it the nickname “fish’s tail” in Nepalese, and the “Matterhorn of Nepal.”

Machapuchare is a mountain situated in the Annapurna massif of Gandaki Province, north-central Nepal, and is a sacred peak for the Gurungs and the people of Chomrong. It is believed to be the home of the god Shiva and has never been climbed to its summit. The only confirmed attempt was in 1957 by a British team led by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Roberts. Climbers Wilfrid Noyce and A. D. M. Cox climbed to within 492 ft (150 m) of the summit via the north ridge, to an approximate altitude of 22,793 ft (6,947 m). However, adhering to the word of honor given to the then King Mahendra, Noyce and his team descended without stepping on to the summit, making this photograph all the more special.

This piece of artwork comes with the author’s certificate of authenticity, making it a valuable addition to any collection. So bid now and seize the opportunity to own a stunning piece of Himalayan history while contributing to a good cause.
