The Land Of The Kyrgyz

Kyrgyzstan has recently become the proud owner of the most expensive photograph in Central Asia, The Land of the Kyrgyz. It was privately commissioned and presented to the President of Kyrgyzstan, Bakiev, for his birthday on August 1, 2009. President Bakiev received the only existing print of this enormous panoramic landscape (87 by 31). The piece of art is identified as The Land of the Kyrgyz by a massive, solid gold nameplate, mounted on the precious burl walnut frame. His gift was purchased for $300,000 from MFF Gallery in Boca Raton, Florida.
