Description

This print is inspired by an old Finnish hand embroidery tradition. It is part of my project researching the old textiles and stories that go with them, and creating modern versions of the old form. The saying "Niin metsa vastaa kuin sinne huudetaan" translates roughly in english to "The forest answers the way you yell into it." The english equivalent would be something similar to: what comes around, goes around.

The image was hand carved on linoleum and printed with bright yellow and teal colors on natural white paper. The details of color inside the woodpecker. were hand colored in with watercolors after the ink was dry. Each print was then numbered and signed on the bottom. This is an edition of 45.

The colophon on the bottom talks about the print and translates the saying. For more information about Finnish wallhangings you can see my website (http://www.mirkah.com/projects-and-classes/huoneentaulu-projekti/) or FB page (facebook.com/pages/Huoneentaulu-Projekti/153360398097574).

Measurements
Paper size: 15x 10 3/4" or 38x 27cm
Image size: 12x 8 5/8" or 30x 22cm

Prints are shipped flat in between cardboard. They are in plastic sleeves with a little slip explaining about the project and artist. If too much shipping is charged, I'll refund anything over $2.

Just received my locket and it is adorable! I already own some of Mirka's artwork, but the fact that I can now wear it around is so cool. As always, her attention to detail is outstanding, both with the artwork itself and with the packaging. Definitely a wonderful Mother's Day gift- got one for my mom and myself!!
