The piece is 6 X 6. The background consists of stamps collected in Australia. The 3 dimensional element is a rusted metal container with a blue/green swirled marble that has been placed inside the canvas*. A wash of brown acrylic paint was applied to the surface for an aged look. The piece is sealed for protection.
The sides are painted so there is no need to frame. Ready to hang with d-rings and wire already attached.
*I like using 3D objects in some of my work. But do not like the bulkiness it can create on the surface of the canvas. So I came up with the idea of making a cut in the canvas to insert the object into.
