This is another one of my pellucid skimmer boats called NAVIGATING THE PAST. I chose vintage images that all related to the beach and to water...two of my favorite themes when it comes to vintage photographs. The images are printed on thin gampi paper and attached to a frame work of hammered copper. The copper frame is held together with waxed linen thread. The overall look is of an ancient skin boat held together with sinew. the stand is made of cherry with copper uprights. Unfortunately I forgot to measure this piece before it sold but it was approximately 9 inches long.
