Religion - or better to say the religious values - are so deeply ruted in the nepali culture that you shouldnt be surprised seeing people in all different ages no matter which class, gender, colour, whatsoever, spinning the prayer wheels clockwise with their hands every day hoping to recieve good charma for their next lives. Every prayer wheel has the buddhist mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" written on it and by spinning it you "pray" it.
Did you know that artists only receive single-digit commission amounts from most online galleries? While rent and food prices etc. are on the rise, many freelance artists don't make enough money to make ends meet.
That's why we at Photocircle have a different model. While we also need to offer competitive prices, our artists decide for themselves the amount of their commissions. So if the prices of our pictures vary sometimes, you now know why.
By the way: Marco Entchev donates 15% of the proceeds to our reforestation project in Ethiopia, where we hope to have planted 500,000 trees by the end of 2023.
