These are Woodcuts printed on Baltic Birch wooden panels rather than paper. They are more durable and are essentially ready to hang. you just need wire and screws. Additionally because of the inherent challenges of registering the individual color blocks these are much more unique than a paper printed version of the image. So no two of these will ever look quite the same. Lastly, because they are hung without glass they are much more visually accessible, you will be able to get a sense of the topography of the printed layers as they sit on the surface of the wood. I love the way these look1 and i think you will too!
