New Framed Painting

Here's a new one that we've just finished. The painting is Fly Away With Me and features AB's second model in a tomb-like setting full of bats and wall paintings.

The picture frame combines cocobolo wood, 23 karat gold leaf (the cornice, which Barrie hand shaped/carved for his first major carving project), and polychrome features (the black painted surfaces). Styled with an Egyptian flair, Barrie calls this The Gift of the Nile picture frame.
Framed size is 32 x 24 inches / 81 x 61 cm
