The Lion is the symbol of Venice and can be seen everywhere in the city. In this etching I have created a rich and luscious image - a true reflection of the historical grandeur of such of magical city state.
This print is an aquatint made on a copper plate. It is printed on Somerset Velvet, a heavyweight 300 gsm handmade paper from St Cuthbert's Mill in Somerset and is signed and numbered by the artist.
