This papercutting is inspired by Moby Dick, the ocean, whaling ships... and folk art of the 18th and 19th centuries.
The background paper is water colored and aged parchment paper. The whale is parchment paper that has been printed with a copy of an indentured servant letter from the late 1700s. The ship is made from a vintage book fly leaf page that has a wood grain design. The other pieces are various vintage papers from my stash.
The entire design including the vintage frame is about 9" x 9".
This will come with glass in the frame and ready to hang.
