Framing Small Pieces

This antique Mughal painting has dimensions of only 2 5/8 inches by 5 ¾ inches.  As a method to create a larger outer frame dimension and a more impressive final presentation, a 4 inch border of antique white mat radiates outward from the piece.  The antique white shade of the mat offers a neutral border without an overly stark effect, complimenting the aged quality of the art.  The deep bevel of the mat creates dramatic dimensions within the frame by creating an angle that draws the eye inward to the painting.  The simple and deep bronze frame adds a glow to the final product as well as degrees of complexity to compliment the elaborate details of the Mughal art style.
