Just curious, does anyone know what happened with the Seven Seas release?
1XRun has it archived, but it never dropped on their website.

It was supposed to be released, then pushed back, and finally cancelled. I tried contacting both 1x and cryptik, but didnt get anywhere with either of them. I was hoping it would be a late release with this years Pow Wow but no such luck. its a shame too because it looked like a really beautiful design.

Same here. Pretty much radio silence whenever I asked about it. My guess is something involving lawyers, but no real knowledge about it.

Just got a little word but nothing that we dont know. Never released, never going to be released. no reason as to why, but at this point it doesnt really make much difference. it is unfortunate tho, that gold and black foil would really pop off the white paper

What a shame, I've been holding out hope that it would at least appear in an "archive" sale or something.

Frustrated it's only 12x16 but I grabbed it anyways. Going to slot it between the two previous 16x16 squares.

Damn! Wish I would've checked this sooner. Have the other two hanging up and would have loved to add this one to wall. Anyone having buyers remorse please shoot me a message!

'm very pleased to announce the release of our first print of the year, 'Bodhisattva', which is a Sanskrit term for a human being who is able to achieve nirvana, but delays doing so for the benefit of all sentient beings. This print is adorned with the sacred mantra, 'Om Vajrasattva Hum,' dedicated to Bodhisattva Vajrasattva (the Prince of Purity). It is a powerful mantra for the purification of negative karmic forces and spiritual impurities. The intention of this mantra is to help all sentient beings attain enlightenment or a better reincarnation, but can also be recited prior to undertaking a new pathway on the journey to enlightenment. The mantra is imploring Vajrasattva to be both the means for a pathway and the pathway itself towards enlightenment for all sentient beings.

Title: 'Bodhisattva' | Mantradala Series
Size: 20" x 20"
Colors: 3
Paper: Black Arches 250 GSM
Edition: 100
Signed & Numbered
Certificate of Authenticity
Mantra: 'Aum Vajrasattva Hum' (Purification of Karma)

Really like this one! Just finished hanging these a few weeks back. Framed the Mantra Mandala print myself. First time I tried floating a print that big, but think it turned out pretty nice! Might have to add this new one to the wall.

Thanks man! Bought the frame from pictureframes.com and mounted the print myself. Took me a couple of tries to get it right, but it looks great on the wall. I had only tried float mounting small prints before, so it was quite the learning experience. It's a little hard to tell from the pics, but the frame is a bronze color and matches perfectly with the bronze in the print.
