An Original Linocut Print of Aphrodite and Adonis, Ancient Greek Lovers. Valentine's Day Gift

Hand printed by myself at my home studio in the Northeast of England, so everyone is slightly different and unique.

The process of a linocut print is quite lengthy. I digitally design most of my prints, these are then printed and transferred to a block for carving. Once carved the block is inked and printed to produce the final piece. Each edition is different but limited. This edition will be of 20 prints. Each print is titled and signed for authenticity and comes with a descriptive note about the mythology of the design.
This lovely little print would make a sweet valentines gift for your true love. 

Aphrodite found Adonis as a baby and gave him to Persephone in the underworld to raise him. She returned once he was fully grown and fell instantly in love with him as he was the most beautiful man she had ever seen.  Persephone had also fallen in love and longed to be with him but Adonis only had eyes for Aphrodite and from that day on they were never separated. She begged Zeus to turn from a mortal to a God and he granted her wish. Love conquers all. 

This linocut print is hand printed on delicate nepalese mitsumata washi paper, with schmincke water based ink. 

The size of the print is 5 inches by 7 inches approximately and the paper is approximately 8 inches by 10 inches square with rough edges.

This is for the print only, if you would a mounted print to fit a frame, please get in touch, as I can do this for you.

Also available as a Valentines Card in the shop.

Your print will be carefully wrapped to ensure safe delivery. I am trying to make the move to using post-consumer packaging to be more eco-friendly. 

UK orders are being posted by either the Royal Mail or Evri, depending on the size of the print, for orders over £15 this will be by tracked delivery.  For orders under £10 I use 2nd class post. International Delivery is most often with Royal Mail International Standard Delivery
