Details

Twinkling stars surround the crescent moon in the blue night sky. Together in their tenuous light, a couple makes love in a desert landscape with cactus, stones and desert creatures. Birds pair off before seeking their nest for the night and a curious wolf watches the people with interest. Recalling the story of the original sin, J. Borges adds a red serpent that winds sinuously through their Eden on northeastern Brazil. The artist works in the woodcut technique.

Xylograph (woodcut) print on paper, titled "Luar do Sertão" in Portuguese.

He tells a charming story in color and details. My order from Novica arrived before I expected it -- it was delivered so quickly. Excellent packaging.

"Vibrant print"

As an aspiring artist I dont often purchase other peoples art,I dont usually have the budget however when I saw this print by J. Borges I made an exception. His work is dynamic and I feel very strongly in supporting artists from other parts of the world. I feel it is an investment in the artist and an investment that will give me smiles every time I see it on my studio wall. Hopefully it will also possibly appreciate in value as well,though my main reason for purchasing this was bc I really enjoy the design. I love that when I am able to save up, I can come here to Novica and find lovely things that give back to the wonderful crafts people who work so hard to earn their living. We get something wonderful knowing that the people who made these objects are engaged in fair trade. Win win : )
