It has been extremely exciting to see my VIKING PROW: COILED SERPENT come to fruition after kicking around in my head for several years – and what a joy to hear the response from collectors and fair goers who have brought it into their homes and offices or stopped in to discuss them with me over the summer art show season.
This piece became available in June (after several frustrating production delays). Now, only five (5) remain of the initial batch of twenty and these will be the last ones available until after the holidays. So, if there is a deserving Viking in your life, you can claim one at etsy.com/shop/Jivotica
For those who may not know about this piece, it is a tribute to the mighty sea kings of ancient Scandinavia (the Vikings) whose reach extended from Constantinople to North America and from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean Sea between the 8th and 11th centuries. It is modeled after one of the most famous archeological finds in Scandinavian history – the Oseberg ship. The piece seeks to capture a sense of the majesty, mystery and artistic flair of ancient Scandinavian culture.
My VIKING PROW: COILED SERPENT weighs about 3 pounds and stands roughly 16 inches tall. It is strictly limited to 95 signed/numbered castings and a handful of artist proofs. Each piece is hand painted, weathered and sealed (so no two are exactly alike). It comes with a signed COA/story card as well.
Many thanks to all those who have commented on – or purchased – one of these Prows. Your support and patronage is what drives me forward as an artist and allows me to make a living doing so.
