Madonna And Child
Mixed Media - Egg Tempera/23 Kt Gold
It�s been many years of wanting and finally doing a painting in hand made egg tempera (each day made with fresh egg yoke and pigment) and authentic 23kt gold leaf. I came up with the famed �Madonna and Child� originally done by one of my favorite iconic artist�s, Russian Byzantine Monk �Rublev� to check out other great works by this artist see here;*http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrei_RublevI *, This painting was painstakingly built up where the 23kt gold is laid. The border took approximately 30 hours to lay and paint culminating in a total of 70 hours to complete the entire painting. In love with Swarovski crystals there are 103 mini crystals embedded in the halo and the Madonna�s head-dress. The measurement of the completed painting is 11�14, on hardwood.
