This print is the second best of five prints from the Last of Four Editions, and the editions are limited to five prints each. This etching originated with a 1987 photo taken by the artist and was executed on one zinc plate, which measured 6 inches high by 9 inches wide. The studio techniques of intaglio, aquatint, Chine colle, and Drypoint were employed. Moreover, six separate baths in Nitric acid were used to reach the final design. The framed works measures about 12 inches high by 16 inches wide. French, oil base etching ink was used on RivesBFK white paper. Mulberry bark paper from Thailand, infused with Kozo threads from Japan, was used in the Chine colle process. The artist printed and published this work at the Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on The Fleisher Art School campus. The scene depicts a 13th century Romanesque chapel in Spain shows called San Bartolome’s Hermitage. It is a Knight’s Templar church built upon an original building from 500 years earlier. Its mystical location in Soria lies within El Parque Natural del Cañon del río Lobos. The unusual round window features a reverse pentagram, and is the subject of another Di Falco etching. The upside down star with five points is an extensive symbol in both Pagan and Christian Art. The star’s points contain many meanings, including one related to the five Hebrew books of the Pentateuch, a collection of writings that establishes all Jewish teaching and life. The symbol was also sacred to the Knights Templar, because it relates to The Holy Grail, as well as to many clandestine stories concerning Mary Magdalene as Christ’s Bride. Mary is called Christ’s companion in the Aramaic and Hebrew language, and actually translates as wife. PRICE OF THE ART INCLUDES A FRAME, MAT, HANDLING, ALL WRAPING MATERIALS, SHIPMENT CARTON, AND CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY.
