Heaven on Earth: Wide

103 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Gran Paradiso National Park, Ceresole Reale, Piedmont, Italy

The Gran Paradiso National Park (French Parc national du Grand-Paradis) is the oldest national park in Italy, established on December 3, 1922, located straddling the Regions of Valle d'Aosta and Piedmont, around the Gran Paradiso massif, managed by the Gran Paradiso National Park Authority, based in Turin. Extended for an area of 71.043,79 hectares, on a predominantly mountainous terrain, on the side French borders the National Park of Vanoise.

The history of the Gran Paradiso National Park is closely linked to the preservation of its symbolic animal: the ibex (Capra ibex). This ungulate, once widely spread at high altitudes, beyond the limit of the forest, over the entire Alpine arc has been the object of indiscriminate hunting for centuries. The reasons why the ibex was such a coveted prey by hunters were the most disparate: the succulence of its flesh, some parts of its body were considered medicinal, the grandeur of its horns sought as a trophy and even the aphrodisiac power attributed to one of its little bones (the cross of the heart), often used as a talisman. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, it was believed that this animal was now extinct throughout Europe, until the Aosta Valley forest inspector Joseph Delapierre discovered that in the impervious and steep valleys that descend from the Gran Paradiso massif survived a colony of about one hundred specimens.

In this VAST photo you can see the heart of the park, one of the most beautiful area with the beatiful lakes Rosset (with inside a famous islet) and Leitaz, surrounded by over 3000 meters high peaks. As you can see the water of the lake has beautiful colors and sedimentations that gives to the lake very interesting shades.

Photographic print

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.
