12×12″ “Alarum :: Cradle” Wren nest with 7 eggs limited edition Giclée Archival Pigment Print



This Archival Pigment Print print titled “Alarum :: Cradle” is a fine art print made from my original mixed media work of art.
The inks that are used in the Archival Pigment Print process incorporate high-density pigments to produce prints with an ultra-wide 8-color color gamut (as opposed to a traditional 4-color system) and are only printed on archival fine art papers. As a result, these prints have extremely vivid colors, high light-fastness and stability, and are also more scratch-resistant than other types of prints. These museum-grade prints are archival and are meant to last at least a century or more, under the right conditions.

Printed on Moab 100% cotton rag heavy-weight archival fine art paper with archival ink, this UNFRAMED 12 x 12″ print has a white border around the image. The “deckled” edge of the paper is meant to be part of the art and is intended to be exposed when framing. The ideal method of framing of these works is by “raising” or mounting the image on a piece of mat board and then floating this over a white background. Either a linen background or a textured white paper background is ideal.

Each print is signed, titled, and dated by me in pencil. Your print comes with a heavy archival matboard backing, an acid-free crystal clear protective sleeve, and is securely packaged flat in a box. **Your artwork comes to you UNFRAMED (the frames in the listing photo are for mock-up purposes only).

***This print is from a series of works titled “Ever Green” that was originally shown at the Lloyd Kiva New Gallery at the Museum of Contemporary Native Art in Santa Fe, NM in 2023. This body of work talks about Wren, the messenger in Cherokee mythology, as she sends signals and songs about what’s to come and what has come to pass. The imagery in this piece specifically depicts the wren’s nest with a strand of barbed wire woven into it. A red Cherokee sun circle represents honesty and clarity. Seven eggs represent the sacred number sever, which refers to the seven directions: North, East, South, West, the lower world, the upper world, and the world where people live.

I am an enrolled citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. You can find more information about this body of work on my blog: https://treeoflifestudio.net/blog.
