On a canvas of 14.5 x 11cm, a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Max” was applied to give this piece its remarkable weight while keeping its proportions true to the actual painting. This is made possible by combining 33.5 oz of copper as a base with a top painting layer of 2 oz of 999 pure Silver, resulting in a high relief. This is a limited edition of 888 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
