Artist's Description

One of the stranger sights that Magnus Hawson encountered when surveying a supposedly undiscovered world.

This world, Magnus called Nirvana after discovering a giant statue of the Earth deity known as ‘The Lord Buddha’.

At about 150 meters high and perched on the top of a cliff at the branch of two canyon rivers, the statue glows with a beautiful radiance. Magnus reported that a sense of calm and peace seem to radiate from the statue.

As much as he tried he could not seem to get any closer than about 100 metres from the statue before his XK119 instantly moved beyond the 200 metre point.

Since its discovery Nivana has remained totally untouched. Not for want of trying though, as it has a wonderful climate and looks perfect for human occupation.

However, every time a ship tries to land, it is immediately and mysteriously transported back into orbit. It seems that Magnus was the only one to ever set down there . . .
