Wear a unique piece of art! This amazingly detailed miniature portrait of Monticello in late spring is hand painted by artist Christina Goodman. Each piece is cast in a resin material; the frame is gilded in 22k gold, using either oil or water gilding techniques. The actual painting is done in acrylics, using extremely fine brushes and a magnifier. The paintings and gold leaf are then protected by varnish. Made in the U.S.A. 1 3/8"w x ¾"h x ½"d.
