This Apache Blessing has become a classic passage on the subject of love... often read at weddings, this original piece of wiork would make a beautiful wedding present or anniversary gift.

In this version I used walnut ink on a natural banana & cotton rag paper with flower petals added for decoration.

~approx size 12 x 17 inches, which can be trimmed to fit a frame at a suitable size ~ it will require a custom made frame
~ this is unframed, and comes to you rolled & tied with ribbon for presenting as a gift.
~you have the option of dark brown ribbon threaded along the bottom as a scroll, just let me know
~You can have names and a date added at no extra cost, to add a personal touch.

~It will come to you gift wrapped (no glue or tape so you can peek!), in a sturdy postal tube.

On the other hand.... perhaps you like the style but have some different words.... or you love the words but would like a different colour scheme..... just get in touch to discuss your ideas :-)


This is the wording used (there are other versions, so i advise doing a search to check which one you want. I am more than happy to adapt this to suit)

The Bidding ~ An Apache Wedding Blessing

Now you will feel no rain,
for each of you
will be shelter for the other.

Now you will feel no cold,
for each of you will be
warmth to the other.

Now there will be no loneliness,
for each of you will be
companion to the other.

Now you are two persons,
but there is only one life before you.

Go now to your dwelling place
To enter into the days of your togetherness
And may your days be
Good and long upon the earth


If you wish to order more than one item I will combine postage where possible & adjust the listing for you, if you contact me before purchasing. In some cases it is preferable to send things individually though, for example a scroll & a canvas.
