Do you remember, some time ago, the sportsguy who stuck his hand in the cage to stroke the lion, well, I can totally relate to that, who would not want to touch such a magnificent animal, who would not just reach out as a reflex almost, to put your hand on such power and such beauty.
This is a textile linocut collage, on a gorgeous 100% vintage linen, I have added different fabrics, all printed with my own linocuts, that is, all the patterns etc are made by me. I have freehand embroidered the lions face and over the flowers quite extensively, with an burnt gold and black thread to enhance the collage.
It is signed in stitch on the front and comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.
The collage measures 16.5" x 32.5" ( 42 cm x 83 cm) I have intended for this collage to be framed behind glass to protect the textiles.
This collage arrives carefully wrapped, I roll it up in a mailing tube with tissue paper and a plastic sleeve. I can also add a personal hand written message of your choosing - just mail me your message and I add it to the package. Each collage also arrives with a free blank greeting card featuring one of my works making it easier for you to add a personal touch! I send it with courier so it is with you quickly and can be tracked all the way.
