「Style Inspiration」 Two papyrus paintings in matching frame, one depicts the famed Great Sphinx of Giza, while the other shows the queen and her ladies sailing down the Nile in a boat.
Hang these in your bedroom, living space or office to make a big statement! This unique piece will blend well with other eclectic elements - think a Persian rug, Chinese vases, African wood carvings and big leafy plants. It will add a touch of mystical intrigue to any space!
Also a perfect gift for the art collector, design guru or Egyptomaniac.
「History」 Papyrus paper is handmade in Egypt from the inner stem of the Cyperus Papyrus plants. The plants are cultivated, then the inner stems are harvested to make the thin strips form which the final papyrus sheets are formed.
The sheets are formed by arranging the strips side by side in two cross layers, then soaking them in water for six to twelve weeks. The sheets are then hammered to squeeze out the remaining water, dried, then polished and cut to size. The result is an exquisite natural cotton like, yet slightly textured handmade paper like you have never seen before.
「Dimension」 Sphinx: 16" L x 14" W (with frame) Boat: 16" L x 13.5" W (with frame)
「Condition」 Very good vintage condition. One small chip on the frame.
