Hand Crafted

Evidence of framing dates back at least 2 CE in Egypt. Originally, artists and craftsmen used a single piece of wood for the painting and the frame. This practice persisted until the 12th and 13th centuries. People then started using four strips of wood that attached at the corners. This style remains the one most commonly used for modern frames.

In this case, this traditional hand carved frame with gold vintage corners, with a pino finish, works as the perfect border of the art made by Kathleen Gavin (KAGMADE), young artist based in New York City.
