Some Holiday Downtime Work - Linocuts

Inspired by the Ajanta Stamp, from 1949, which was inspired by the "The Caves of Ajanta" in India.   This linocut print that I created in winter of 2018. The print area is 8 1/2"x 10" and the paper edge is 15x22. Printed on. acid-free, 90 lb, Stonehenge, from 100% cotton fibers. Printed by hand in my Jersey City studio. Each print will vary slightly due to the technique used in printing.

Inspired by, Rani of Jhansi (19 November 1828 – 18 June 1858) She was the queen of the princely state of Jhansi in North India currently present in Jhansi district in Uttar Pradesh, India. She was one of the leading figures of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and became a symbol of resistance to the British Raj for Indian nationalists. Think badass like Joan of Arc.  This is linocut print that I created in summer of 2014. The print area is 8 1/2"x 10" and the paper edge is 15x22. Printed on. acid-free, 90 lb, Stonehenge, from 100% cotton fibers.
