And at my command the heavens are opened and are shut; and at my word the earth shall shake; and at my command the inhabitants thereof shall pass away, even so as by fire.
This image represents the dual nature of fire. At the last day it will sanctify our bodies and purify us as a refiner’s fire. However fire will also act as a destroyer of the wicked at the last day.
This is an original handmade etching. It was created at the Lower East Side Print Shop. The plate was created by etching the lines into a copper plate. The plate was then soaked in an acid bath, inked by hand, and run through a printing press to create a this one of a kind image. Each image varies slightly.
Printed on Rives BFK 280 gsm. The paper size is 11x14".
Comes to you beautifully wrapped!
This image was printed as part of an edition of 8. Only #7 and #8 are still available. After that, I will release my artist's proofs. *Note: an artist's proof has the same or greater value than the prints in an edition. When the prints in the edition are sold out, the value of the proof increases above the value of the print in the edition because of scarcity. The proof may vary slightly from the edition in that it was made in most cases before the items in the edition were finalized and is part of the artist’s personal collection. The proof may show some of the artist's process with varying paper, inking, or otherwise re-working of the plate.
