Nurnberg linocut by Goddess Gruia

The linocut section in my Goddess Gruia Etsy shop has just been enriched with a new item. This a special, large-size print inspired by a trip to Nurnberg. The preserved medieval elements of the city are outstanding, matching its fame during the Middle Ages. I was especially impressed by the rich urban houses in the typical Bavarian style, with their organic and decorative timber and daub outlook. It can be offered as a travel souvenir or a nice decorative print.

Nurnberg houses, large original linocut print, medieval architecture of Germany, decorative color print, unique historical Bavarian style

The linocut was made employing a special technique - one cut out plate fragment (for the yellow roof) and ink applied by roller and by hand (for the roof openings on the cut out fragment). Due to this technique, each print is unique, thus not numbered but marked as EA, epreuve d'artiste, author's test copy. I have used tones of dark brown, black and saffron yellow for a strong contrast. Signed and dated by the author.
Total (paper) dimensions: 31 x 40.5 cm.
Ready to send.
The print shall be sent unframed, rolled in a sturdy cardboard tube. If it becomes a bit curved upon arrival, please roll it in the other direction and leave it thus for one more day in the tube. It will straighten and be ready for framing.

Golden apple etchings

I have just listed in my Transylvanian Trove Etsy shop two wonderful etchings created by artist Lojze Kalinsek of Slovenia. These original prints depicting a golden apple come in two color variants: RED - gold and silver apple embossed against a red background and VIOLET - gold apple against a dark violet background (see variations). 
Original etching by Lojze Kalinsek, 2006
The depiction can be interpreted symbolically as a reference to the Original Sin / Fruit of Knowledge from Adam and Eve's biblical story, or as an antique element in the mythological episode of the Judgement of Paris. It can be equally viewed as a decorative, modern element, devoid of deeper meaning.
The price refers to one etching, as they can be displayed together as a pair of artworks, or independently, as singular prints.
Very decorative, high quality craftsmanship.
Excellent decoration for either home or office, classy art gift.
The artworks are sent unframed and you can have them mounted and framed according to your taste and budged. They can also be displayed as they are, due to the thick paper they can be propped up on a mantelpiece, for example.
Dimensions (paper): ca. 20 x 22.5 cm.
