    Product Description

    Remembered in Ireland as the Old Woman Creatress who gave birth to all races of men, Sheela- na-gigs are curious stone figures found in Irish, Scottish, English and French medieval churches and castles. Often represented as A contorted, nude squatting female figure, holding open her genitals, she is usually displayed above doors, windows and entrance ways, often located on keystone blocks. Local people call her a Sheela - na- gig - from the Irish Sighle na gCioch meaning ‘the old hag of the breasts’.

    Collectible Fine Art Prints by Jen Delyth

    These signed, collectible museum quality prints are made by Jen Delyth, in her studio. Price rises as edition becomes more rare/valuable. Limited edition or open edition Giclee prints are printed with archival quality pigment inks, onto heavy (300g) Fine Art Hahnemuhle Archival watercolor paper, Acid Free, 100% cotton rag. The new Ultrachrome K3 pigment inks onto Hahnemuhle Archival Fine Art Paper have a tested longevity rating of 60-100 years in full sunlight framed under glass. Up to twice as long with UV glass, and far longer in an album. However, fine art prints are best stored out of direct sunlight for best preservation. This Black Museum Matt board is archival quality. Be sure to ask for similar acid free materials when framing this print, although print is ready to place in standard frame

    Giclee Printmaking

    Contemporary Print makers are beginning to use the Giclee digital print making process using archival Museum quality materials and inks to produce Fine Art limited edition prints. The word Giclee is from the French word "to spray". It is a high quality, plateless printing process that was developed in 1989, in which a fine spray of ink moves across the paper. It rivals lithography in its resolution and color range,and is fast becoming a favorite with artists. Robert Rauschenberg and David Hockney are among those using the technique. Prestigious museums such as the Guggenheim, the New York Metropolitan Museum, the Corcoran in Washington DC to mention a few, are enthusiasticaly embracing the use of Giclee printing from original art. Deep saturated colors, and fine tone resolution using archival water soluble inks and beautiful heavy archival papers produce rich prints which have outstanding fade resistance.
