This etching employed a combination of studio techniques including intaglio, dry point, and aquatint. It is from a limited edition of 25 prints. This work used symbols from ancient Persia, including the winged and human faced bull, which has always captivated my imagination. My use of obsessive line detail lends the etching an aura of optical flight, which is one of my trademarks. Image size is 8 inches high by 10 inches wide. Print measures 11 inches by 15 inches. I hand printed and published this edition at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Please note that this etching is shipped to the collector as is, in other words. . . without a frame or mat. This not only keeps the price reasonable, but also allows the collector a wide range of personal choice in both mat and frame selection. The etching is shipped in a sturdy cardboard box. The artwork is first wrapped in two layers of acid free glassine tissue and then placed between two archival boards, which are fastened together. Next, this packet is placed into the professional shipping carton, which is also packed with bubble wrap. The Absolute Arts Dot Com price includes all handling costs, shipment supplies, and the coast of the shipment box. Mailing costs are added.
