‘Angel with Child’ would make a thoughtful and comforting gift for anyone that has lost a child. This little painting will look equally as nice framed of displayed on an easel.
This particular painting is an encaustic collage, a one of a kind piece created using both the encaustic iron and a heated steel brush on a waxed, wood strata. The angel image was enhanced using various natural pigments and more wax, with each wax layer sealed with a torch flame.
Encaustic art has survived for over 2000 years, longer than any other painting form and is still exhibited in museums around the world. If you care to learn more about the origins of encaustic art consider searching for Fayum Mummy Encaustic Art.
