Mecca (Mohammed) - Final
Image size: 11" x 28.5" (28 x 72 cm)
2 shina plywood blocks
9 hand-rubbed impressions
Paper: 13" x 33" Rives Heavyweight
Here's the final Mecca print. I had a tough time printing the border. I've gotten very heavy-handed with the baren since I started working on large prints, but the border needed a light touch to print properly. It took me a number of prints before I got the feel for this block. Still, I managed to get an edition of 24.
Thanks for taking this journey with me. The next print in this series will be Lumbini where Buddha was born, but I may take a break from these large prints and work on another piece first. I'll let you know.
