This charming pastoral scene is surrounded by a gothic style frame about 3/4" across. It comes attached to a 16" cable chain. Christina Goodman's handpainted miniatures are based on elements of Renaissance art. Each piece is cast in resin or hand built out of wood and gilded in 22k gold leaf. The paintings are done in acrylics and protected by a varnish. Each piece is the only one of its kind, signed and dated by the artist.
