Artwork Description:

This architectural study, an etching on zinc plate, reflects the soul of the Templar Temple that it represents. The etching was published and hand-printed by the artist printmaker Jerry DiFalco at the Center For Works on Paper, Fleisher Art School, Open Studio in Printmaking, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Four Editions are in the works, and this print is from the Second Edition of five prints. DiFalco blended his own mix of four colors of oil base etching ink from Paris. He printed on RivesBFK tan colored paper and employed a Thai, mulberry bark paper, infused with Japanese kozo threads, which was also hand treated with methyl cellulose in the Chine collè process. Other studio processes included intaglio, aquatint, and drypoint. The scene was adapted from original pencil and graphite drawings by the artist. These studies were based on a photo taken by DiFalco in 1990 while traveling in Segovia, Spain. The image size is eight inches wide by six inches high, and the paper size is fifteen inches wide by eleven inches high. The work comes in a black painted wood and glass frame that measures sixteen inches wide by twelve inched high. The price includes mat, frame, signed and numbered etching, Certificate of Authenticity signed by artist, shipment carton, bubble wrap, plastic, packing materials, and information on artist. The scene features the Roman Catholic Church of Vera Cruz, formerly known as Santo Sepulcro, located in the San Marcos area of Segovia. The design is based on a dodecagonal plan, which has a circular nave revolving around an aedicule, or small temple. It is one of the finest preserved European temples of this style, and its construction has been attributed to the Templars. The Knights of the Order of Malta celebrate their religious acts in this church. Noteworthy are the acts of Good Friday, especially the procession of the Christ Yaciente and the Lignum Crucis in which the Knights of the Order of Malta parade with black choir habits. Many mysteries surround this one specific building, which contains many legends and symbols. Some claim that there are veiled references within the design about the locations of both The Holy Grail and The Philosophers Stone.
