Glyptotoket Etching - Laser cut and Gold leaf edition
Copper plate etching with lasercut detail and gold leaf
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. This edition has been worked into with a laser cut design taken from insect nibbles on a leaf. A layer of gold leaf has been added underneath.
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.
