Mater Dolorosa - Religious art

Framed painting of 31X31cm, made on a 25X25cm sheet of vegetable tanned cowhide approximately 4mm thick. 

Modern carving technique (a kind of sculpture in the thickness from the chiseled grain of the leather) and cordoba leather technique with relief from the back ... 

Pattern of "Mater Dolorosa" after a statue in the cemetery of Genoa, religious theme. 

The drawing evolved during the making: upon learning of the tragic death of pop rock singer Dolores O'Riordan, (who was aptly named), the character unconsciously took on some of her features. and moreover, recalled the sculpted virgin that adorned her coffin ... 

Stained and painted, superfine varnish. 

Glued and nailed to a walnut stained "3D" wood frame with white interior strips.
