This beautiful, gold framed Celtic print measures 9 x 11 inches and reads, "Courage does not always Roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying I will try again Tomorrow." For years, prior to the invention of the printing press, monastic artists had been hand lettering, illuminating and painting books and scrolls on parchment. Celtic artist, Kevin Dillon has rediscovered the same medieval techniques used by these monks. He crushes semi-precious stones like lapis lazuli, cinnabar, and azurite. Using a goose quill, the letters are meticulously applied to the calf-skin vellum. One at a time, each of the colors are applied - first blue, followed by the reds, then each remaining color in turn. The final illumination is achieved using 24K gold leaf. The artist's seal is imprinted into molten wax at the bottom of each piece making every print a unique piece of art to treasure for years. "Courage" is a wonderful addition to any home, office or parish.
