Gilded Traditional Framing with a Twist
We framed this hand-painted Brazilian dollar bill in a 12ply white Island matting, showing 3/16″ all around. We also added an 1/8″ spacer to give this piece a more object-like quality. Next we chose a 2″ gilded (to match the gilding in the dollar bill) frame in a traditional American profile with florets in each corner as a decorative addition. The circular florets mimic the soccer ball in the center of the bill, being the main focus of this piece it is central to the theme and important to recognize.
