2018 was a great year, which ended in a particularly special way for us in Bhutan– the National Day Celebrations in Samtse was a huge success, and the entire country came together to celebrate in the spirit of unity and love.
To celebrate the New Year, our calendar this month features an illustration by Artist Ugyen Dorji, based on one of the most moving images from National Day.
Ugyen, who uses the name “Home Based Illustrator” on Instagram to share his work, was amazed by the popularity of his newest drawing.
“When I saw His Royal Highness bowing to His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo while watching the National Day Celebrations on television, I was deeply moved. I felt that was a historic moment, something that will linger in the minds of people for ages. It was heartwarming and beautiful, and I knew that everyone who witnessed the moment felt the way I did– and I knew I had to illustrate it, to immortalise that very special feeling,” says Ugyen, of his wonderful work of art.
We hope the calendar will bring you joy and warmth as the winter chill sets in, and wish you a very Happy New Year.
