Large Horse  Box

Box.Lg.LHorse.3.jpg

This is a reproduction of the famous Lascaux “Chinese” horse as I imagine it might have looked, freshly painted 15,000 years ago. Iron oxide and black manganese paint are blown and hand painted onto stone, recreating in miniature the art techniques of the first artists.

Red oxide paint is blown on to a beautiful weathered 6" x 6" limestone tile, then I hand-paint the black. The pigment is earth-based, so this painting could survive for 30,000 years, just like the first cave art. The limestone is a beautiful cream color. I don't usually put varnish on my stone paintings, but I put a light spray of archival varnish on this stone so that it may safely be wiped clean and withstand gentle handling. The stone begs to be touched!

The box has a rosewood finish which contrasts nicely with the stone's colors. The inside bottom is lined with black velvet. The box is 7.375" x 7.375" x 2.25" tall. The space inside the box measures approx. 6.125" x 6.125" by 1.25" tall. Signed on the bottom.
