This is a Signed and Numbered Limited Edition stretched *museum wrapped canvas giclee print of Burtenshaw's painting entitled "Pillars of Creation: Eagle Nebula." Bruce painted it with permission from astronomers Jeff Hester and Paul Scowen at Arizona State Univesity who snapped the photo utilizing the Hubble Space Telescope.
Upon a closer look, you will find images of a sleeping cat, the heads of a grand wizard, a dog, a camel and a snake (some see it as a lion's head), images of a ghost, a ghoul leaning on its elbow, a head with a goatee and a pair of glasses, and several ghoulish faces! All these images are clearly visible in the actual Hubble Space Telescope photograph!
*Museum wrapped refers to the technique of stretching a canvas print so that the image remains on the front surface of the stretcher bar frame. A solid color then wraps around the edges of the frame, such as white, black, or a predominant color in the painting.
A side view photo of the stretched print will appear after choosing a stretcher bar frame depth. If you desire a different solid color than the edge color shown, see *request a custom side/edge color below.
Prints stretched on deep depth 1-1/2" stretcher bar frames are designed to be hung with or without frames. *Floater frames for these prints can be purchased under the frame option.
*Floater frames provide a deep space, channel, or "moat" around the artwork--between the edges of the canvas and the frame--and can make it seem like the artwork is floating. This compliments the artwork by adding a stylish three-dimensional look and feel.
Prints purchased with floater frames will come with black as the solid color for the side edges of the canvas print in order to compliment the black inside moat in the floater frame. If you desire a different color, such the color shown on the deep depth option without a floater frame, see *request a custom side/edge color below.
*Request a custom side/edge color for any print by adding a comment in the space provided in the "CONTACT" section of the main menu. Common colors include white, black, or a predominant color in the painting. Bruce will be more than happy to assist or recommend color options for the side edges of a desired print.
Mahalo for your interest in Bruce's paintings!
