"Snakes" is a reduction print made from three blocks: beige, red, green. The beige block was reduced twice--first the whole beige area was printed, then some of the beige area was carved away to form the snake bodies/heads, then more was carved away to leave the lines that separate the bodies.
It was made from water based pigment brushed on to the hand carved blocks.
The print comes mounted in 8 x 10 conservation mat.
