Copper plate etching
Printed image size: 30 x 40cm
Paper size 38 x 49 Approx
These hand pressed prints are created with a traditional copper etching technique at Northern Print, Ouseburn, Newcastle using a press. The plate is inked by hand to editions may vary slightly.
The image shows the contents of a cabinet from Glyptoteket Museum Copenhagen, Denmark.
The cabinet holds plaster noses, ears and other body parts taken from 'repairs' to precious statues in the museums collection. At some point in history these repairs / nose jobs were removed to leave only the authentic sculptures behind.
