I love medieval Catholic art, and I think this one is especially beautiful. It's a miniature, possibly from an illuminated manuscript or a missal. Mary and John are at the feet of our Crucified Lord. The Angels are collecting his blood in golden chalices, which reminds us of the Eucharist. The people in the village behind - which would have been the world we would have known if we lived in the Middle Ages - have been redeemed by Jesus's Passion. It is a well-ordered place that lives in the light of Christ.

The original was painted by an anonymous German artist of the 15th Century. It is made of tempera colors and gold on parchment. This is a high resolution print. We have taken out the main staining and flecking, restoring it closer to its original.

Standard size. Easy to find a ready-made frame at your local Hobby Lobby. If you're sending this as a gift and would like us to frame it for you, please convo and we'll make special arrangements for you.

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
