Artwork description:

This is an original hand-carved linocut showing Buddha sleeping by a pool of lotus flowers. The work would bring calm to any living space due to it's peaceful subject matter and yet stand out brilliantly due to it's sharp, graphic quality. 'Sleeping Buddha' is part of the 'Dashavatara' or the ten avatars of Vishnu, the Hindu God of preservation.

The work is printed using a hand-burnishing method in which the paper is placed over the linocut and then the back of the paper is rubbed intensely with a burnishing tool to transfer the image. For this reason the registration marks used during printing are faintly embossed around each corner on the outer edge of the print. This only adds to and emphasises the handmade nature of the piece.

This is a limited edition linocut, printed on 315gsm Heritage Bookwhite printmaking paper.

Your print will come wrapped in protective tissue paper to reach you in the best condition.

If you have any questions relating to the work before purchase please don't hesitate to ask me.
