This snake was originally designed as an ex libris (book plate) but then was transformed into the first of my combo series, upon which all the combo designs are based.
I was born in the year of the snake, and the red snake symbol is actually my initials 'BW' in the form of a snake.
It is made from layers of sumi ink brushed on to three hand carved basswood blocks. The red is water based pigment.
The print comes mounted in 8 x 10 conservation mat.
PLEASE NOTE: This item is one of the images that can be matted together in family groups of 2 to 6. Please contact the artist to order groups matted together.
