Ave Maria – Hiding Places

img_0854

The carved space in this beautiful reclaimed barn wood block makes a window for the Blessed Mother’s portrait and a retreat for your thoughts and prayers. The painting consists of layers of pigmented beeswax (encaustic) and is finished with a line drawing and rich brown stain. Under her portrait the long carved space is filled with pigmented encaustic and coated with Gold leaf. Over the groove is affixed a ladder made out of jute and branches, a symbol for your ascending prayers.
The block measures 7″x 12″ x 2″ deep, can hang on the wall or rest on a shelf. The barn wood block is beautiful from any angle and the natural element gives it a wonderful presence.
