Artwork Description:

This hand printed etching of a Seraph employs the studio techniques of intaglio. The work pictured here is from the FIRST EDITION of FOUR, and all editions are limited to only five prints. I executed the work on a zinc plate covered with hard ground and etched the plate twice in Nitric acid. I printed and published this work at The Center For Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania within Fleisher Art’s Open Studio in Printmaking. My media include a blend of three colors of oil base, French inks printed on RivesBFK white etching paper. The narrative is based on three of my original drawings, all inspired by a mosaic from The Monreale Cathedral in Sicily. The image shows a Seraph, which is a angel with six wings all covered with blinking eyes. The word SERAPH stems from the Hebrew term for Burning Ones. In Christian mysticism from Medieval times, this type of angel ranks in the highest hierarchy of choirs. Seraphs are deemed to be the Caretakers of God’s Throne, and they continuously sing the phrase, Holy, Holy, Holy. The title of this specific mosaic is, “Seraph with the Four Gospels”, because the angel’s four faces symbolize the manifestations of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, OR a human, eagle, ox, and lion. The image size is nine inches high by six inches wide, and the print measures fifteen inches by eleven inches. The frame size is sixteen inches high by twelve inches wide. The cathedral in Monreale, Palermo, is regarded as the most dazzling of all Sicilian Norman churches. Its mosaics contain over 2200 kg of pure gold. Craftsmen from Constantinople were engaged to advance the work’s creation, and these Byzantine mosaics are classified as the most magnificent in existence. According to Dr. Ute Dercks, Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz, Max-Planck-Institut, evidence documents the construction to 1174, although initiatives in planning and preparation can be projected back to the death of King William I in 1166. THE PRICE INCLUDES THE MATTED ETCHING IN AN ARCHIVAL MAT, A FRAME Color Gold, ALL HANDLING COSTS, CARDBOARD SHIPMENT CARTON, BUBBLE WRAP, AND A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY. The work is wired and ready to hang. The framing includes a brown craft paper backing, and a wall hook and nail are included. The etching title is without spaces and in all caps, IAMSERAPH.
