Back to the Future — Experiencing Premium Tibetan Rugs the Metaverse Way
One popular criticism of Web3 is its lack of applications with grounded utilities. Many metaverse-related projects seem to fall short on delivery of solutions that offer use cases that appeal to mainstream markets. As a cross-chain decentralized app, MetaDojo aims at introducing the new metaverse dimension to change how businesses interact with their customers, how communities bring their members together, and how individuals socialize with one another.
Our August event saw us hosting an exhibition in an eye-opening 3- dimensional space, which is a first step toward metaverse retailing. Not only can visitors look at high resolution images of the products, they can also learn and appreciate the process of how they were made through watching videos placed in the gallery.
Atelier Changphel Premium Tibetan Rug Collections
In this purpose-built metaverse art gallery called the Meta Pyramids, four breath-taking collections of premium Tibetan rugs are on display. All of them are handmade work of Atelier Changphel, a high-end interior lifestyle brand rooted in the culture of Tibet.
The Tiger Collection: More than 1,300 years ago, the first Tibetan carpets were made with tiger skin. For a very long time, only Tibetan nobles, religious leaders, and well-respected individuals such as doctors were allowed to use rugs made with tiger skin or tiger designs. Rugs with tiger designs are a cultural icon to Tibetan people, they are typically placed at the entrance to a home or temple in order to ward off bad luck.
The Spirit Animal Collection: Legendary Tibetan creatures such as snow lions, dragons and phoenix are amongst the many Spirited Animals showcased in this collection.
The Traditional Collection: Stylized flowers, each with its unique significance in Tibetan culture, are the most common motifs utilized by weavers because of their auspicious meanings.
Contemporary Artist & Web3 Collection: Imagine contemporary art and pop culture engraved into traditionally made Tibetan rugs! There are works from popular artists such as Matisse, as well as renowned NFT works such as Bored Apes and CryptoPunks. Atelier Changphel is excited about the possibility of co-creating with NFT owners and sharing the rights to have their creations circulate in both primary and secondary markets.
