This is a PYROGRAPH, burned into birch panel, by manual PYROGRAPHY. 27 x 24 x 1 in
So : PYROGRAPHY - PYROGRAPHS (same as PHOTOGRAPHY - PHOTOGRAPHS) !!!
Basically it's the same good ol' woodburning, just taken to another level : different tools, different technique, different approach.
I'm using this "Sculpture & Crafts, Artisan Crafts, Woodworking" category to post my artwork, just because a "PYROGRAPHY" category is not yet created (hopefully it will be soon)...
This particular piece is a pyrographed reproduction of Caravaggio's oil on canvas "Death of the Virgin", 1606.
