“I’m smiling because you are my sister, I’m laughing because there is nothing you can do about it.” No truer words were ever spoken! This old Celtic proverb expresses in a few words what all sisters know. Let your sister know how happy you are that she is “stuck” with you because you simply cannot imagine a life without her. How we love our sisters, and we should not forget to express it. This whimsical and lovely matted framed print will convey your sisterly devotion in just the right sentiment. The artist is Kevin Dillon and each original piece, before copied, is constructed when he crushes semi-precious stones – lapis lazuli, cinnabar, azurite and others, to make his own paints. Using a dip pen or goose quill, he meticulously applies the letters and beautiful designs to the calf skin. One at a time, the colors are applied. And the final illumination is achieved using 24K gold leaf. The artist's seal is imprinted in molten wax at the bottom of each copy, making every print a unique piece of art from the Celtic monastic tradition. All works are based on The Book of Kells and constructed in that same tradition.
